(STATEHOUSE) - State lawmakers are set to consider a bill that would eliminate high school class basketball.

Senator Jean Leising (R-Oldenburg) says her proposal would allow school corporations to compete in the IHSAA only if the association does not have games divided into classes. Currently, the Indiana High School Athletic Association runs the state's four-class basketball tournaments.

If passed, the change would take effect July 1, 2012.

This is at least the second time legislature has tried to create a single class playoff system. An amendment by Rep. Eric Turner, R-Gas City, mandating a single-class tournament during Christmas break in addition to the multiclass tournament at the end of the season, was voted down 74-19 in January of 2000.

Indiana has had class basketball since the 1997-98 season.
