Iowa lawmakers still undecided on school spending
from Iowa Radio
Gov. Kim Reynolds says she and other Republicans at the statehouse are close to an agreement on how much "new" state spending to send Iowa’s public schools. "Right now, I think if we get close to that $100 million range, I'm good," Reynolds said this weekend during an appearance on "Iowa Press" on Iowa PBS. Reynolds has proposed a 2.5% increase in per pupil spending. Two other proposals have already passed the legislature. One increases support of geographically large school districts with hefty transportation costs.
