Bill Caption

Relating to the qualifications of directors of the Spectrum Management District.

Fiscal Notes

Because the bill would not have statewide impact on units of local government of the same type or class, no comment from this office is required by the rules of the House/Senate as to its probable fiscal implication on units of local government. 

Bill Analysis

SB 2038 seeks to repeal a section relating to the disqualification standards, mainly dealing with conflict of interest, of the directors of the Spectrum Management District. The bill would apply these standards to the directors of the Spectrum Management District which is currently exempt.

Vote Recommendation Notes

SB 2038 would remove an exemption to directors of the Spectrum Management District that is not afforded to the directors of similar districts. This would effectively remove a special privilege conferred to one district under current law and make that district abide by the same disqualification standards as similar districts. Hence, this bill supports the principle of equal treatment under the law which supports limited government. We support SB 2036.
