Bill to reduce term limits of school board members may hit governor’s desk soon
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCJB) - A bill to reduce the term limits for school board members is a step closer to hitting the governor’s desk.
The Florida House passed the legislation to cut school board members’ term limits from 12 years to eight.
A Senate committee is set to take up the bill on Tuesday.
The Senate version also includes eight-year term limits for county commissioners.
Critics of the proposal argue that term limits aren’t needed, as elections already give voters the chance to remove school board members from office.
