The first week of the 2023 Legislative session is behind us and support for public education is enjoying the honeymoon period.
House Education has heard four (good) bills and none had any opponents. The most important, HB15 to “Implement K-12 Inflation,” was heard Monday. This is the bill that provides basic funding for our public schools and several proponents spoke of their appreciation for the early introduction of HB15 so that school districts could plan their budgets. There have been sessions when the school funding bill was not a priority.
It was a brief hearing and should move along quickly in the process. We will keep you posted.
