Senate approves education funding formula

The Senate today had the final word on the legislature’s rewrite of the formula the state uses to pay for local school operations. They agreed with the House version without change. The bill that was based on the recommendations of a legislative task force that met over the summer passed on a sixteen to four vote and with a final, favorable vote tomorrow will go to the Governor Palin.
