News Release: BISD reviewing Supreme Court ruling
BISD News Release Melody Chappell, attorney for the Beaumont Independent School District, and the election legal team are reviewing today’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling to determine its impact on BISD.
Legal counsel has advised BISD officials that the Court struck down Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act which provided jurisdictions with preclearance enforcements by the U.S. Department of Justice.
“We will review the matter to determine what this means for BISD’s anticipated 2013 election,” Chappell explained.
