CURRENT ACTION ALERT
April 2013 - Fund our children's education!
How much is one student worth?
According to the House and Senate it may be less than what they were worth last year.
Both the House and Senate have passed their full versions of the budget and unfortunately thanks to some amendments many of schools will see a loss next school year. With the existing language schools could see a loss of as much as $39 per student.
The Senate Appropriations Committee passed their version of the budget a few weeks ago, which not only included an almost $100 increase for schools, but it also included an equity payment, continuing us down a path of closing the funding gap between schools in this state.
The two budgets will now be going to a conference committee, which is made up of both representatives and senators. Please urge your legislators to support the Senate Appropriations Committee version of the budget. More importantly, urge them to fund your child equitably and fairly!
