HB 1450 - DIGEST

Finds that the citizens of Washington have long enjoyed the right to petition for a transfer of territory between one school district and another and to have their petition decided upon by a neutral body separate from either school district.

Declares that recent legislation intended to encourage decisions about school boundaries to be made at the local level by the affected school boards was not intended to abrogate the right of citizens to have their petition heard and decided by the educational service district regional committee.
