House Education Committee Passes Another Day

January 7, 2004 - Posted at 4:11 p.m. CDT

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - The House Education Committee today didn't take up a school-funding bill passed yesterday by the Senate.

Instead, the committee approved several related bills including one that would supplement school millages in poor districts with state money to bring them up to a state average millage yield.  Another bill advanced by the committee would require districts to track their athletic expenditures.

The Senate approved the $438 million funding plan yesterday.

Yesterday, the House passed an amendment to a bill backed by Governor Huckabee that eliminates from the bill a provision to consolidate smaller school districts.

Huckabee says he could still take his plan to voters.
