Legislature Eyes Cuts to Public Education Budget

Go to www.myuea.org and read the Jan. 31 summary from Kory Holdaway and Jay Blain (UEA Lobby Team) at "Under the Dome" under Politics/Legislation. The appropriations committee went beyond the 7% across the board cuts and put in jeopardy programs such as adult ed, K-3 reading program and busing. We hope that revenue projections in later this month come in higher and they will restore the cuts. The cuts would lower the WPU (Weighted Pupil Unit) by 295 dollars.

Depressing news Blog Contest question: Who is the chair of the Senate Public Education Appropriations Committee (clue: His name rhymes with "nutters")
