capitol_sunset.jpg (Feature: Small Thumbnail)AB 622 (Campos) Internet Posting of Charter School Petitions. This bill would have required charter schools and districts to post their petitions at least three days prior to a public hearing. The veto message states: "I am returning Assembly Bill 622 without my signature. Local school districts have been authorizing charters schools for over 20 years through proceedings that are both noticed and public. The new requirements contained in this bill would not, in my opinion, improve the current chartering process."
