THE PLAN CLEARED THE STATE SENATE THURSDAY.

THE INCREASE IS ROUGHLY IDENTICAL TO THE AMOUNT PRIVATE SCHOOL PARENTS WILL START GETTING IN STATE-FUNDED SAVINGS ACCOUNTS NEXT SCHOOL YEAR.

HOUSE SPEAKER PAT GRASSLEY SAYS THREE-POINT-SEVEN BILLION DOLLARS WILL BE SPENT ON SCHOOL DISTRICTS NEXT YEAR — SO REPUBLICANS ARE DEDICATING 45 PERCENT OF THE ENTIRE STATE BUDGET TO PUBLIC K-THROUGH-12 SCHOOLS.
