A California state senator on Monday introduced legislation that would likely result in many schools beginning classes at a later start time.

Under Senate Bill 328, school districts would be required to implement a start time of no earlier than 8:30 a.m. at middle and high schools, according to a news release from State Sen. Anthony Portantino, who proposed the legislation.
