Now come the motions on public school operations. Rep. Wendy Jaquet, D-Ketchum, made a budget motion that eliminates the cuts in transportation funding that passed the House this week; it hasn't yet passed the Senate, she noted. The proposal reduces a 5 percent base pay cut for classified school employees to 3 percent. Rep. Cliff Bayer, R-Boise, then made a substitute motion for the operations division. His motion includes the transportation changes, and reducing the 5 percent base pay cut for classified workers to 2.63 percent. Both motions tap stimulus money that's coming for schools.
