2012 Senate Bill 949

Senate Roll Call 246: The amendment was not adopted

To not use money from the state School Aid Fund for this budget, but instead use money from the state general fund. Although under the state constitution the SAF is to be "exclusively for aid to school districts, higher education, and school employees’ retirement systems," the K-12 public school establishment contends that the 1994 Proposal A initiative earmarking a sales tax increase to the SAF means it can only be used for K-12 schools.
