Education Committees Discuss Public Schools Budget

Before the Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee (JFAC) is scheduled to begin setting the Public Schools Budget on March 1st, the chairmen of the House and Senate Education Committees have been asked to testify before JFAC next week about the budget proposal.

This morning, the House Education Committee discussed Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Luna’s FY 2011 budget proposal and what comments the committee wanted Chairman Bob Nonini to present to JFAC. The committee discussed the budget for about 45 minutes today and will continue the discussion on Wednesday, February 17.

The Senate Education Committee plans to take up the budget discussion this afternoon at 3 pm MST. Superintendent Luna will be in attendance to answer any questions the committee might have.
