What Happened at the Legislature
To say that this has not been a spectacular session may be an understatement,
BILLS THE LEAGUE FOLLOWED THAT THE GOVERNOR HAS SIGNED
Act 62 (SB 2203) CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS. This act requires the legislature to include as part of any bill on amendments to the constitution the exact wording which is to be printed on the ballot--phased in such a way that it can be answered "yes" or "no".
Act 63 (SB 2205) Board of Education. This act requires the Chief Election Officer to adjust the departmental school board districts to conform to the new re-apportionment plan.
BILLS THE LEAGUE HAS FOLLOWED THAT PASSED THE LEGISLATURE
SB 2119 COMPARABLE WORTH. This bill squeezed past the Conference Committee. It provides for a study commission to review the need for and application of comparable worth for State and County employees.
HB 1311 PUBLIC AGENCY MEETINGS. This Bill changes the requirements for meeting notices from 72 hours to six calendar days.
PROPOSED CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS FOR THE 1984 BALLOT
Other bills we worked on that were less fortunate dealt with campaign spending and sunshine provisions. The League also dealt with the issue of pesticides on which there were a multitude of bills as well as proposed election law changes watch for a report in a later Leo Hana.
