HBA-MPM H.B. 2139 76(R) BILL ANALYSIS Office of House Bill AnalysisH.B. 2139 By: Gutierrez Public Education 4/16/1999 Introduced BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Teachers and full-time librarians employed by public schools in this state are required to work a set number of days based on a calendar which the school board adopts as a provision of an employee's contract, and are obligated to work any additional days as the board sees fit. Teachers and full-time librarians are therefore required to work extra days and are not necessarily paid for this extra work. H.B. 2139 requires teachers and full-time librarians to be paid for their extra days of service. RULEMAKING AUTHORITY It is the opinion of the Office of House Bill Analysis that this bill does not expressly delegate any additional rulemaking authority to a state officer, department, agency, or institution.
