Interested Party Testimony HB 305: Protect Student Health & Wellness Funding

Testimony to the House Finance Committee

November 17, 2020

Nearly 18 months ago, I testified during the biennial budget hearings to this committee on the topic of school funding. I shared that though I supported the significant investments made in student Health & Wellness as part of the education budget, it did not address our state’s lack of a rational school funding formula and should not be viewed as a replacement for a sound school funding system. I stand here today very encouraged that a bipartisan, bicameral group of legislators and school district practitioners have worked together over the past five years to develop a school funding plan as represented in HB 305 and SB 376 to achieve consensus. Read the full testimony here.
