"For God will bring every work into judgment,
Including every secret thing,
Whether good or evil."
Remember, earlier this month, when Dan Huberty attempted to bury coverage of his plan to completely re-write one third of the state budget in the controversy of the privacy act?!?
He did it again.
Check out what he did while the House was hearing Constitutional carry yesterday:
After weeks of debating how to prevent school districts from becoming financial losers, the House Public Education Committee voted 10-1 on Tuesday to adopt its leading school finance bill, which would inject an extra $1.6 billion into the state public education system.Read the whole thing here.
Committee Chairman Dan Huberty, the author of House Bill 21, praised the committee for building legislation that would boost per-student funding for almost every school district and charter in the state. He also acknowledged the losses some school districts would have to face: “I know that we didn’t help everybody. And we tried.”
HB 21 is now eligible to be considered by the full House. The House Appropriations Committee is expected to pass its budget this week, with a full House vote likely next week.
HB 21 would increase the base funding the state doles out to districts per student, in part by increasing funding the state gives to schools with bilingual and dyslexic students. Members voted on a substitute version of the bill, which more fully addresses how to tide over school districts losing money. This version does not yet have a fiscal note.
Bottom Line: MOAR MONEY for socialized education; so popular we need to bury it behind controversial bills!!!
