Ohio schools concerned about a $100 million transportation cut in the state budget
from WKSU News
Both the House and Senate increased the amount the state will spend on its 610 school districts beyond Gov. John Kasich's original budget proposal. But school leaders are concerned about a big cut that's remained through all three versions of the budget. The Senate budget puts $271 million more into schools than the House budget does, meaning that only about 75 districts will get less money than they got last year. But school leaders say the largest general revenue fund cut to any part of the budget is in student transportation — a cut of $100 million.
