Local school boards were the explicit targets of multiple bills during the 2023 legislative session as lawmakers attempted to instill formally partisan values into the education system, showing the importance of these boards. They decide where kids go to school, classroom sizes, and even what textbooks are used.

Commissioners and trustees work to protect clean water, address sanitary and sewer concerns, and make sure utilities run smoothly.
