From Sen. Barry Glassman:
Senator Barry Glassman, Harford County, reported a rare victory Wednesday for Harford County’s state education funding. Recent formulated results had left the Board of Education with a $4 million loss of state aid due to changes in enrollment and the fact that the County had loss less wealth than other jurisdictions.
Senator Glassman reported that an amendment on the Senate Floor was successful in restoring $2,079,000 to the local board. Although the measure is only a one year disparity grant, Glassman said “the restoration will alleviate some of the drastic cuts which still may be necessary at the local level.”
The amended Budget matter will still need to go back to the House of Delegates which failed to address the shortfalls in the Budget Bill which passed the House last week.
