MOE Bill Approved By House Subcommittee, Untouched

Today, the Education Subcommittee of the House Ways and Means Committee voted to approve SB 848, the major legislation passed by the Senate to overhaul the state’s maintenance of effort requirements for school funding. While multiple stakeholders had included comments and amendments (including a set of thorough issues raised by MACo) the Subcommittee acted in near unison to resist every offered change, and to approve the Senate bill in the form passed by the Senate.

Action on the House floor is expected early next week.
