State Superintendent of Schools Tom Luna said after Gov. Otter's State of the State message, "There's no doubt that education is going to receive less money than they got this year. No one is happy about that, but it's the situation that we're in." Asked if he accepts the governor's proposal for a 5.34 percent cut in school funding, Luna said, "We're still in the process of reviewing it." He'll present a revised budget request to JFAC, Luna said. It may or may not match Otter's figure, but, he said, "It will be a decrease."
