House GOP Expects To Take Vote On School Funding Next Week

Des Moines, Iowa — Speaker Pat Grassley says Republicans in the House will advance a plan next week that sets the general level of state taxpayer support of Iowa’s public K through 12 schools for the next academic year.

Republican Governor Kim Reynolds has recommended a two-and-a-half percent increase.

Grassley isn’t ready to reveal whether House Republicans hope to again send more state money to cover busing costs in schools that cover large geographic areas. The Central Decatur School District, for example, covers 60 percent of the county and has had the highest per pupil transportation costs in the state.
