The Missouri Senate has voted to create a governing council that would remove the current members of the St. Louis' special school district school board. Kimberly Lohman reports from Jefferson City.
For the next two years, school board members would be appointed, not elected, by a new governing council if the school board bill is passed by the House. The council would be made up of 23 members selected by each of the school boards in St. Louis county. Normandy Senator Wayne Goode says the measure puts authority over the special school district's annual budget in the hands of the governing council.
The future of the bill is uncertain as the House has rejected the measure in the past. From the state capitol, I'm Kimberly Lohman.
