LOS ANGELES : Measure on Splitting Up School District Defeated

March 18, 1994

A bill that would have paved the way for splitting up the massive Los Angeles Unified School District was defeated Thursday in the Assembly, severely diminishing the chances that the school break-up movement will make any headway in the Capitol this year.

The legislation by Assemblywoman Paula Boland (R-Granada Hills) would have reduced the number of signatures required to put the question of splitting up the 640,000-student school district before Los Angeles voters.

Boland said the Assembly's 35-33 vote "just kills the bill. . . . But I'm going to plow ahead with this issue. I refuse to give up and I'm not going to let the parents down." Boland's bill needed 41 votes to pass. Although technically it could be resurrected in a conference committee, observers said the outcome would be the same if it returned to the Assembly floor.
