HB 1993 -- Recall Elections for School Board Members

Co-Sponsors:  Bennett, Chrismer, Gross, Dolan

This bill creates a method of recalling school board members in
addition to the procedures for recall outlined in the
academically deficient school statute.  Upon a petition signed
by at least 25% of the number voting in the last school board
election, a recall election will be held.  The bill specifies
the requirements for filing the petition, its physical form and
content, and the procedure for verifying signatures.  If a
majority votes to retain the recalled member, the member remains
in office and cannot be subject to another recall, except as
provided in the academically deficient school statute.  If the
member is recalled, a successor will be chosen in the same
manner as vacancies are filled for any 7-member district.
