INDIANAPOLIS Indiana would pay up to $9,000 of student loans for teachers under a measure headed to Gov. Mike Pence.

The legislation authored by Democratic Rep. Justin Moed would provide loan reimbursements to anyone teaching science, technology, engineering or math.

The reimbursements would only be available to teachers who performed at the top of their class in high school and college. Moed says the measure is designed to keep talented teachers in Indiana while training new students in critical areas.

Lawmakers awarded final approval to the proposal Monday. It now heads to the governor's desk for consideration.
