The House and Senate Democrats cannot agree on how to enact the NEW Levy rates for schools. The Senate version includes sending levy assistance money to Charter Schools the house does not. As of 9:00 PM on Sunday night (Session supposed to end at midnight) there was no agreement by the house with the Senate. The House wants NO levy assistance to Charter Schools.
One source said: “Just how much do some in the legislature hate charter schools? They are willing to go into special session to deny funds.”
