SB660 Reports/Calls Needed

Senator Favola's SB660, which will protect teachers from nepotism and cronyism in the school board appointment of hearing officers for dismissal hearings, was reported from the Elementary and Secondary Education Subcommittee of the House Education Committee this morning.  The vote was 5-Y 4-N.

YEAS--LeMunyon, LaRock, McClellan, Hester, Bagby--5.
NAYS--Bell, Richard P., Lingamfelter, Cole, Pogge--4.

 Delegate McClellan led the debate on our behalf, and Delegate Lingamfelter led the opposition.

This bill now goes to full committee where it should be taken up on Monday.
