Senate OKs bill stopping public funds used for school board legal defense

Posted: Updated:

The Georgia Senate signed off on House legislation that would keep local school boards from using public money to pay for lawyers or legal work.

The bill is a direct reaction to the lawsuit filed by former DeKalb County School Board members.

The lawsuit had been filed by members before they were removed by Governor Nathan Deal.
