STATE BUDGET-EDUCATION
(2008-06-11)
(wgvu) - The Michigan House has voted to give K-12
public schools 55 dollars to 110 dollars more per student in the
budget year that starts in October.
Now lawmakers will have to work out a compromise.
The K-12 spending plan approved 61-48 yesterday would provide
increases dependent on how well a school district is now funded.
Districts that get the per-student minimum of 72-hundred-and-four
dollars would get the biggest increases.
The Senate's K-12 plan calls for increases ranging from 71
dollars to 142 dollars per student. Governor Granholm earlier this
year proposed increases ranging from 108 dollars to 216 dollars,
but that was before fiscal experts lowered estimates of how much
tax revenue is coming in.
Michigan's struggling economy is limiting the revenue that goes
to the state.
