Dennis DeRossett is president of the Press Association and says the hearings are needed because they'd give taxpayers more insight into how the governing body for high school sports operates.

Chapa LaVia's bill also calls for an evaluation of whether the state should take over duties for the nonprofit that's based in Bloomington.
