House Approves $456 Million for School Facilities

LITTLE ROCK (AP) - The House has voted 81-to-15 to spend $456 million from the state surplus on improving school facilities around the state.

The bill approved yesterday in the House is a key part of the latest legislative effort to satisfy an Arkansas Supreme Court ruling in the long-running Lake View case. In that case, the court found the school-funding system unconstitutional and has said the school buildings are inadequate.
