(AP) — School Superintendent Glenda Ritz and a small group of Indiana
mayors are making their case for more funding from the state.
members of the Indiana Association of Counties and Towns told the Senate
Appropriations Committee Thursday the state needs to spend more on schools
Pence's budget included a marginal increase in school funding over the
next two years while making room for a cut in the personal income tax cut.
However, House Republicans rewrote the budget to spend more on roads and
schools. It's now before the Senate.
schools chief told the Senate panel the $30 billion House plan is a start,
but not enough for schools. Mayors from Franklin and Lebanon also told
committee members they can't afford basic road repairs.
