Introduced by Sen. Howard Walker (R) on May 21, 2014, to authorize appointment by the governor of an Emergency Manager for a public school district that fails to comply with an “enhanced deficit elimination plan” required by Senate Bill 952 for a district whose first plan failed to fix the problem, or is in “rapidly declining financial circumstances”.
Referred to the Senate Appropriations Committee on May 21, 2014.
Reported in the Senate on December 2, 2014, with the recommendation that the bill pass.
Amendment offered in the Senate on December 3, 2014, to eliminate a tie-bar to Senate Bill 956, meaning this bill can still become law if that one does not. SB 956 would revise details of a law that allows the state to loan money to a public school district that has a deficit and an approved plan to eliminate it. The amendment passed by voice vote in the Senate on December 3, 2014.
