Keough Questions Task Force Makeup

Sen. Shawn Keough, R-Sandpoint (re: Luna seeks a few good techies): I believe this is the task force that is set out in SB 1184 with a membership list in the bill which is now law. What is interesting, if I understand this post correctly, is that applications & nominations are being accepted which is a different approach than asking each of the groups delinated in that list to pick the people that will represent them. For example, wouldn’t the School Board Association decide amongst themselves who will sit on the Task Force? Does this announcement mean that if you are a member of the School Board Association you can submit your application directly to the Supt. who will choose the person to sit on the Task Force? Again, if this is the Task Force set out in the bill, it also has a prescribed list of duties too. See page 21 beginning on line 8.
