Intent language adopted unanimously, public school budget set at same level as before

There was no objection to the intent language attached to the public school budget in the Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee this afternoon, so it was adopted by unanimous consent. That leaves the new public school budget pretty much the same as the Senate-defeated one, with the difference being that it leaves out items that have been incorporated into SB 1199, and instead references that legislation. Overall, schools would get a 2.2 percent increase next year in state general funds.
