3 CColleges Oppose Henderson Bill

Update: House committee kills bill to change community college boards/Betsy Russell, EOB

HB 411, a proposal from Rep. Frank Henderson, R-Post Falls, to expand the boards of all three of Idaho's community colleges from five to seven members and impose specific residency requirements on the two new members is drawing strong opposition this morning from all three of the colleges, North Idaho College, the College of Southern Idaho and the College of Western Idaho. … NIC trustee and former State Board of Education President Judy Meyer (pictured) told the lawmakers on behalf of the NIC board, “We are unanimously opposed to HB 411. We believe there is no need for this legislation.” Regional representation has never been an issue the three times she's run for the NIC board, Meyer said. “Five members is a good working number. … There's no need to grow government in these lean times”/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise.
