Bill Information Edit

House Bill 33

Title: AN ACT relating to the commissioner of education.

Sponsor: Kenny Imes

Date Introduced: 5 January 2016

Final Resolution: Dead

What Does It Do? Edit

Requires Senate confirmation for the commissioner of education.

What Are the Politics? Edit

Pros Edit

Currently the State Board of Education chooses the commissioner of education. The members of this board are not elected by the people. This would give the people of Kentucky a bigger say in who the commissioner of education is.

Cons Edit

This could draw out the confirmation to outrageous lengths if politics gets in the way of confirming a qualified commissioner.

What Happened? Edit

HB 33 never made it out of the House Education Committee.
