There is a state supreme court order to more fully fund schools. With that in mind, here is where talks stand -
Democrat House: +$700M for schools with all new taxes
Rep (controlled) Senate : +$1B for schools with tax cuts and loop hole closures.

C'mon, we DO care about the chilluns.
But if it comes down to a second jet-ski or pencils, well, you know that a happy principal is much more important than any silly "education".
But don't forget we care. Just like the campaign signs with the little apple on them.
That shows "caring" don't it?
