Feedback Wanted on Proposed Constitutional Amendment for School District Changes

legislation1Representative Caldwell and Senator Brandes are looking for feedback.  Their bill HJR 530 would allow cities to withdraw from county school districts and form their own district.  Of course, cities have the revenue.  Thus, the remainder of the counties would be strapped for cash.  There is criticism about the proposal even among other Republican party members.  The bill, if passed, would become a constitutional amendment.

Since the legislators have asked for feedback, we should provide some.
