A bill to bring school board elections to Harford County passed out of a subcommittee of the House Ways and Means Committee Thursday. A vote by the full House Committee expected as early as today, March 27th. HB 639 would create a blended school board with six members elected in each of the six Harford County Council districts and three members appointed by the Governor.
Sources say there has been an eleventh-hour effort by one board of education member to make changes to the bill. Any changes at this time to the House bill would create a mismatch with the Senate version, which passed the Senate on March 17th, and send the legislation to a conference committee.
