At the Capitol: Final Update for 2015
In a June 12, 2015 Special Session, the 2015 Education Omnibus Bill passed the House on a 115-10 vote and through the Senate 53-12. Our June 16 Update covers the final results.
All of the policy and funding provisions that had been in the original conference committee report were continued in the final bill. The final bill added $125 million to the bottom line. The additional $125m is largely appropriated to the per pupil formula, early education and vulnerable students.
The education special session documents can be found here. Scroll down to “Committee Documents” and you will find the bill itself, the summary, the fiscal appropriations tracking sheet and district runs. Runs show you what dollars you can expect in your district.
