INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana lawmakers held a hearing Monday on a bill that would allow school board candidates to declare a political party affiliation on the ballot.
Under Senate Bill 188 , all candidates would have a political party affiliation next to their name on the ballot l, or would run as independent candidates.
The idea was discussed in a committee hearing in the House last year, but the bill died after no one testified in support.
This session, both opponents and supporters testified before the Senate Elections committee.
A vote on the bill was not held Monday as lawmakers plan continued to work on the legislation. There is not any indication when the bill may get a vote to advance out of committee.
