The Maryland Senate gave final approval to a bill that would overturn an executive order by Gov. Larry Hogan that required local school districts to start their school year after Labor Day. The measure would allow local school districts to decide when schools should begin and end.
The measure before the California district's school officials would allow the LAUSD to tax structures on properties annually at a rate of 16 cents a square foot for 12 years. But disagreement centered on whether the school district meant to tax the spaces where people park and, if so, whether they went about it legally.
