2006 House Bill 6004: Revise ISD election and disclosure requirements
Introduced by Rep. Brian Palmer R- on April 26, 2006
To revise the procedures for the election of Intermediate School District boards. Most ISD boards are selected by the boards of the constituent school districts.

The bill also adds additional conflict of interest provisions for ISD administrators, and specified that required ISD financial disclosure reports must break out individual expenditures for public relations, polling and lobbying, rather than aggregating these in lump sums.   Official Text and Analysis.
