My Senate Budget Amendment And Per Pupil Minimum Aid

The Senate Ways and Means Committee has proposed a $30 per pupil minimum aid - today, I offered an amendment to raise that to $100 per student.

Each student deserves the strongest possible learning environment and every school district struggles to provide one. Our support for education, in this way, would be, I believe, both fair and equitable. Per pupil minimum aid is an important factor in the state's school funding formula.
