2014 Senate Bill 957: Expand state oversight of public school overspending
  1. Introduced by Sen. Roger Kahn (R) on May 21, 2014, to establish a process whereby a public school district experiencing “conditions of fiscal stress, a deficit, or a potential financial emergency” can apply for “technical assistance” from the state including data analysis tools, so as to avoid further state intervention. The bill would also give the state Superintendent of Public Instruction or the state Treasurer the authority to require a public school district experiencing financial stress to submit periodic financial status reports as specified in the bill.
    • Referred to the Senate Appropriations Committee on May 21, 2014.
