SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - State lawmakers have overwhelmingly endorsed a proposal that would limit the compensation school districts can pay to California school superintendents who are terminated before their contract is completed.

The legislation by Assemblyman Luis Alejo would limit severance packages to 12 months’ salary, and offer nothing for superintendents who have committed fraud or another illegal fiscal act. Current law allows departing administrators to collect up to 18 months’ pay, or 6 months’ pay in cases of financial wrongdoing.

The Watsonville Democrat says it’s in response to outrageous payouts of up to $500,000 for superintendents who were terminated.

The Assembly approved his AB215 on a 66-1 vote, sending it to the Senate.
