Coverage on Governing Board Members //

ear Myron:

I cently I wrote you on whetheryou felt the above referenced coverage
would be legally provided to the Board members while on District or
asin business.

t was my opinion that there was a statutory prohibition against using
he District funds for it. However, there was a desire to see whether
legally the prohibition could be overcome. It was my understanding that
ou and Buddy had reviewed the matter and reached the same conclusion
hat the coverage was prohibited. However, I have not received a written
eply confirming our thinking.

accordingly, I would appreciate your giving me an opinion on the matter
r my file and to present to the Board members for an official reply
their inquiry.

ry truly yours,

staff Attorney
