Texas: El Paso School Board members can't face recalls, but law proposed to change that
El Paso Independent School District board trustee is facing threats after a major scandal, but they cannot be recalled because "they are considered county officials under the Texas constitution and only district judges can choose to remove them."
Two local representatives are working on bills to allow recalls of school board trustees. Two bills allowing the recall were filed in 2001 and 2005, but did not pass.
