Dear Members of the House Education Committee,Please pass HB228 ( Utah State Board of Education Elections and Reporting Amendments) with a favorable recommendation. The bill changes State School Board process and requires candidates to follow the same open election process as every other elected office in the state. This change will provide both a more direct, local selection of candidates/board members as well as increased clarity during the election.
