March 5, 2021

The state Senate’s Education, Health, and Environmental Affairs committee heard testimony Wednesday on a local bill that would change the appointing authority for the Harford County school board from the governor to the county executive, with input from the county council. “This change is intended to bring appointment decisions closer to the local level, and require collaboration between the executive and legislative branches of county government,” said Sen. Jason Gallion, who presented the legislation on behalf of the Harford County Senators.
