FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — A House committee has advanced a bill to require Kentucky’s local school boards to set aside at least 15 minutes for public comments at regular meetings. Rep. Regina Huff says her legislation seeks to ensure that school board members hear feedback from parents and other residents. The measure cleared the House Education Committee Tuesday and advances to the full House. Huff is the committee’s chairman. She says most Kentucky school boards allow time for public comments. Huff says the bill was prompted by frustration in some counties where parents felt they weren’t given a chance to speak up.
