Regulatory Streamlining Miscellaneous Amendment Act Receives Royal Consent

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.
