2012 Senate Bill 961: Appropriations: K-12 School Aid budget (Senate Roll Call 244)
facebook  twitter 

Passed 25 to 13 in the Senate on April 25, 2012, the Senate version of the school aid budget for the fiscal year beginning Oct. 1, 2012. This would appropriate $12.712 billion, compared to $12.659 billion authorized the previous year. The bill would increase the per-pupil foundation grant to school districts by between $116 and $232, depending on whether they now get more or less than average. Among many other differences, the Senate significantly watered down and reduced the dollar amounts of "best practices" grants proposed by Gov. Rick Snyder, which distribute some school aid money on the basis of whether schools adopt various fiscal and transparency reforms.
