Bill Information Edit
House Bill 33
Title: AN ACT relating to the commissioner of education.
Sponsor: Kenny Imes
Date Introduced: 5 January 2016
Final Resolution: Dead
What Does It Do? Edit
Requires Senate confirmation for the commissioner of education.
What Are the Politics? Edit
Currently the State Board of Education chooses the commissioner of education. The members of this board are not elected by the people. This would give the people of Kentucky a bigger say in who the commissioner of education is.
This could draw out the confirmation to outrageous lengths if politics gets in the way of confirming a qualified commissioner.
What Happened? Edit
HB 33 never made it out of the House Education Committee.
