Governor Dalrymple is asking the Senate Education Committee to restore the K-12 education funding formula bill back to its original version.
The bill makes more state money available to local schools. And its sponsors say it will provide significant property tax relief.
The House changed the original bill. It now requires local school districts to levy 70 mills. The original bill required a 50 mill local property tax effort. That will reduce the state’s funding by $120-million.
