Special Education Funding Achievement

After months of filing amendments to satisfy our commitment to fully funding the Special Education Circuit Breaker at the 75% level, I am pleased that our collective advocacy on behalf of school children, their families, and communities has resulted in the full support of the Senate Ways and Means Committee.

The newly released Fiscal Year Budget proposal for 2019 includes $318.9 million for the education of students who require special education services. I appreciate the support of more than 50 lawmakers who joined me in requesting this funding; this funding represents an achievement for critically needed school district resources.
