Lawmakers Proposing Increase in Funding for K-12 Education
DES MOINES, Iowa — Republican lawmakers are proposing an increase in education funding.
Lawmakers in the House are proposing a $40 million increase for K-12 education, which would be a 1.1% increase. This is less than the 2% increase proposed by Governor Branstad.
Democrats say a 4% increase is necessary to prevent layoffs and program cuts.
