The BC government brought the Regulatory Streamlining Miscellaneous Amendment Act into force on July 7, 2000. It had been given Royal Assent on June 12. The Act amends a number of statutes. In one significant amendment, it changes the School Act to provide for the election of trustees in a district to be carried out by a combination of election at large and election by electoral areas. The School Act previously required on or the other form of school trustee elections in a district, but not a combination. The Act also eliminates the requirement that school boards routinely deliver records of matters discussed and decisions made in board meetings to the Minister of Education.
