2014 Senate Bill 951: Expand state oversight of public school overspending
  1. Introduced by Sen. Howard Walker (R) on May 21, 2014, to expand the scope of a law that prescribes processes and requirements for correcting local government deficit spending, so that it also applies to public school districts. Districts that fail to follow the steps required under a deficit elimination plan could have 10 percent of their state funding withheld until they comply.
