2009 House Bill 4447: Appropriations: 2009-2010 School Aid budget

Public Act 121 of 2009

Introduced by Rep. Terry Brown (D) on February 24, 2009 The executive recommendation for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2009-2010 school aid budget. This would appropriate $12.963 billion, compared to $13.378 billion, which was the FY 2008-2009 amount enrolled in 2008. It "pencils in" a $59 per pupil decrease in annual foundation grants to schools, but there is an expectation that federal "stimulus" money will be used to keep this spending item contant.   Official Text and Analysis.
