House lawmakers voted 81-45 Saturday approving changes to the bill that would allow County Executive Rushern Baker more control over the school system.
Maryland House lawmakers have given final approval to a bill giving Prince George's County Executive Rushern Baker more control over the county's school system.
The House voted 81-45 late Saturday approving changes to the bill made by the Senate.
Under the bill, Baker will choose the schools superintendent instead of the school board. Meanwhile Alvin Crawley and Harrison Peters, the two remaining finalists in the search for a school superintendent, withdrew their name from consideration to lead the school system.
Baker says he'll reopen the search if the legislation is signed into law.
