House Bill 1279 — and its Senate companion SB 1164 — would’ve cut the FHSAA’s budget in half (from $5 million to $2.5 million), replaced executive director Roger Dearing and the 16-member board of directors, stripped the organization of its authority to govern transfers and limited eligibility-related investigations to a maximum of 90 days.
