A bill in the General Assembly aimed at curtailing the voting power of student school board members in Maryland died in committee last week. The legislation, filed by Del. Reid Novotny in January, received an “unfavorable” report from the House of Delegates Ways and Means committee on Feb. 12, killing the bill with a 14-7 vote. The bill would have stripped student school board members in the state of their vote if it were a “deciding vote” on a motion.
