Kilroy’s School Board Audio Recording bill, sponsored by State Rep. Deb Hudson, passed the Delaware House of Representatives unanimously just now. The final vote was 40 yes and 1 absent. House Bill 61 is the second time this bill has been in the General Assembly. House Bill 23, from the 147th General Assembly, never got a full House vote.
This is Kilroy’s legacy to Delaware. He has fought hard for this bill for years. The first time I ever went to Legislative Hall was for my failed attempt to get House Bill 23 up on the agenda. This was my thanks to Kilroy for letting me write a very long story about my son on his blog before I started this one. A lot has happened since then and the need for transparency from our school boards has never been greater. It still has to go through the Senate, with the Senate Education Committee first. But there is no reason why it shouldn’t pass there.
Congrats Kilroy! I’m glad I got to hear it live!
State Rep. Earl Jaques said it was a great bill!
State Rep. Kim Williams thanked State Rep. Hudson for sponsoring the bill!
I emailed Kilroy a VERY BAD audio recording of the vote on the school board audio recording bill!
