MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) -- State Senator Cecil Staton is filing local legislation that takes taxing power away from the Bibb County Board of Education.
A news release from the Senate Press Office states, the legislation would require that the BOE present the final school budget to the governing authority of Macon-Bibb County for review and approval. The legislation reinstates the Macon-Bibb County Commission as the funding authority for the county.
Senator Staton plans to talk about the bill during a news conference on Wednesday from the State Capitol at 2pm. We'll bring you updates from the conference on the 41 NBC News at 6.
