None opposed to shrink size of EBR School Board

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

There was no objection on Thursday from a Senate Committee on a bill to reduce the size of the EBR School Board from 11 to 9. The issue goes next to the Senate floor.

Senator Bodie White says with new school systems in Central, Baker, and Zachary, the reduction makes sense and will save the parish money.
