LITTLE ROCK, AR - State legislators in budget hearings today expect to get details on the Public School Fund.  The fund is what the state uses for local school districts.

The Huckabee administration proposed a $4.5 billion public school budget, but isn't seeking additional funds to further expand preschool programs, even though there is legislative support for an increase.

Also today, the Huckabee administration is expected to say how it plans to whittle some $80 million for public school building upgrades from its proposed budget.
