Subject: Board Legislation Update - Action Now
February 1, 2006The Prince George's County House Delegation's County Affairs Committee met this morning to consider further amendments to PG 401-06. At last week's meeting, Committee members approved several amendments, but retained the bill's essence (elected board, nine single-member districts aligned with the County Council districts).Delegates present today: Frush, Griffith, Howard, Parker, Patterson, Proctor.Delegate(s) Absent: Hubbard.Today, other amendments were considered:Delegate Howard: Establish nine, single-member districts. The new district configuration resembles the nine school board districts that existed prior to 2002. Delegates worked with Karl Aro of Legislative Services to assure that the "new" districts met legal requirements. AMENDMENT PASSED.
