Lawmakers pan Greitens plan to fund school transportation costs
from St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Gov. Eric Greitens’ plan to help school districts pay for school bus costs is drawing heat from lawmakers. In his $28.7 billion state budget outline, the Republican governor said he wants to spend $2 million more on transportation costs for elementary and secondary schools. But, members of a House budget committee that focuses on education say the GOP governor is actually proposing to spend $13 million less than the Legislature approved last year.
