2012 Senate Bill 949: Appropriations: Community Colleges (Senate Roll Call 246)
facebook  twitter 

Amendment offered by Sen. Glenn Anderson (D) on April 25, 2012, to not use money from the state School Aid Fund for this budget, but instead use money from the state general fund. Although under the state constitution the SAF is to be "exclusively for aid to school districts, higher education, and school employees’ retirement systems," the K-12 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. The amendment failed 19 to 19 in the Senate on April 25, 2012.
