HB 23 must immediately be heard by the full House

The blog post title says it all.

The facts as we know them:

  • HB 23 would mandate that all District school board meetings (both public and charter) would have to be recorded and posted on the District and/or school websites.
  • HB 23 was heard and voted out of committee on March 27.
  • It has yet to be scheduled for a floor vote by House leadership

What is going on here? This is a good government bill. Why are some factions against this bill? Kilroy and John Young have done a great job dissecting the opposition to this bill, even going so far as to highlight the reasonably cheap audio recording systems that could be purchased by districts/charters to implement this law.

Why is this bill being held up, Speaker Schwartzkopf?
