Senate panel kills move to end school board salaries

Sen. Stephen Wise's bid to do away with school board member salaries was short-lived.

Wise, R-Jacksonville, last week introduced the measure in the Senate education committee he chairs. The panel took up the proposal on Thursday morning -- and promptly voted it down with a 2-1 vote.

Sens. Bill Montford, D-Tallahassee, and Lizbeth Benacquisto, R-Wellington, opposed the bill. Wise voted for it.

The bill didn't have a companion in the House, so the effort is dead for now. But Wise has been known to introduce items as a warning shot and then bring them back the following year.
