BIG SPRING - The Big Spring School Board voted to move forward with leasing part of the district's land for oil exploration.

Now that it's passed, oil companies will be able to start bidding.

Once the bids are in, a public hearing will be held for input.

The district was approached by a company a few months ago about land in the northwest part of Howard County.
