Pihos Perspective Oct 24th, 2014
Senate Bill 16Angst and concern continues to follow Senate Bill 16, a new school funding formula which would greatly impact our suburban schools. As minority spokesperson for the Elementary and Secondary Education Committee, I have been in face-to-face conversations and phone conversations with Elementary and Secondary Education Chairperson, Linda Chapa LaVia. On October 8th, Representative Chapa LaVia made a commitment in writing to delay legislative action at least until the spring session of the 99th General Assembly. She reaffirmed that the proposal in its current form will not become the law and there is much work to be done to develop a fair funding formula.
