Marquez's bill and five others filed by state Sen. Jose Rodriguez were spurred by a cheating scandal at the El Paso Independent School District that artificially raised scores on the state's standardized test at the expense of students.
"This bill allows for a Constitutional Amendment giving the voters the final voice when it comes to elected officials," Marquez said in a statement. "In many communities, school districts are the biggest taxing entity and the public should have the right to recall members who are not serving in the best interest of our students. School board members are elected officials and should be held accountable to the public."
The text for the bill is not yet online but it can be found here in a few hours.
