School Bill Still In Play

The Ohio House approves a bipartisan proposal to overhaul the state’s school funding system…though it’s uncertain whether the plan will get a vote this month in the Republican-led Senate…as some lawmakers question the accuracy and feasibility of the eventual price tag…an estimated $2 billion dollars, annually. Lawmakers championing the proposal have pushed for action before year’s end, when several of them leave office because of term limits. But the Republican who leads the Senate Finance Committee, Sen. Matt Dolan, has indicated he thinks the changes will take more time to fully evaluate and should be considered during next year’s state budget process.
