Time is up on Kentuckys testing plan

Susan Weston at the Prichard Commitee blog points out the following language from Senate Bill I:
Within thirty days of the effective date of this Act, the Kentucky Department of Education in collaboration with the Council on Postsecondary Education shall plan and implement a comprehensive process for revising the academic content standards in reading, language arts including writing, mathematics, science, social studies, arts and humanities, and practical living skills and career studies. The revision process shall include a graduated time table to ensure that all revisions are completed to allow as much time as possible for teachers to adjust their instruction before new assessments are administered.
Susan interprets this as meaning we should have word soon on the plan. I interpret this (call me a literalist) that we should already have word. The bill became effective, as Susan points out, on March 25. Thirty days after March 25 is April 24. April 24 was last Friday.

So where is it?
