The Senate Committee on Education and Health reported out SB 1031 (Barker-Fairfax), which provides that any local funds appropriated to a school board that are left over at the end of a year shall remain the funds of the school board and can be spent the next year without the need for an appropriation. This legislation has been a priority of school boards for many years. As can be expected, boards of supervisors and city councils are contacting the Senators asking them to vote against this bill.

We need for you to call or email your Senator NOW to ask him or her to VOTE FOR SB 1031.
