SYNOPSIS: Provides that a vacancy is created in the governing body of a school corporation when a member moves out of the school district from which the member was elected or appointed.
SUPPORT: It stands to reason that if move away from a district you represent, you should step down from that seat. Unfortunately, our elected officials don't enjoy giving up what little power they've accumulated -- school board members foremost among these officials. While disproving residency is very tricky, the legislation remains a good attempt at keeping representation local.
STATUS: Authored by Rep. GiaQuinta, referred to Committee on Elections and Apportionment.
