GOP files election complaint against Palm Beach superintendent
Like so many Florida school districts, the Palm Beach system is asking voters to extend its School Board's authority to levy a "critical needs" property tax beyond this year.
When the district distributed materials about the tax to employees and students, though, some Palm Beach Republican activists decided it had gone too far. State law prohibits government agencies from using taxpayer funds to advocate for political issues, though they can provide factual information.
The Palm Beach Republican Party announced it would file a complaint with the Florida Elections Commission, the Sun-Sentinel reports. District officials say they've not crossed the line.
