House Bill 524: Technical Amendments to Education Laws
Sponsors:
Representative Russo-Savage
Summary:

House Bill 524 makes clerical changes to Vermont’s education code. In addition to fixing capitalization and other grammatical errors, the bill also changes all references to the “Commissioner” to references to the “Secretary of Education.” This change reflects Vermont’s recent decision to have the Governor appoint the head of the Department of Education and to change his official title from “Commissioner” to “Secretary.”
