Money, Money, Money: K-12 budget bills move to conference



Gongwer New Service is reporting that Legislative leaders and representatives of the Governor are discussing much smaller cuts to K-12 education than are currently included in either version of the school aid budget. Senate Majority Leader Randy Richardville said that the anticipated extra revenue available for this year would be used in part to reduce the K-12 cut to around $100 per pupil (in addition to the $170 cut carried over from this year). These discussions came out of negotiations over the budget "targets" that would guide conference committee negotiations on all the budget bills.
