2013 Senate Bill 193

Senate Roll Call 124: The amendment was not adopted

To not use tax revenues earmarked to the state School Aid Fund in the higher education budget, but instead use non-earmarked (general fund) revenue. Although the state constitution explicitly authorizes using SAF money for higher education, the 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.
