Our sources in the House tell us they've just passed the School Aid budget, avoiding the need for a continuation budget. The bill reflects a $165 reduction in per pupil funding, as opposed to the $218 per pupil that had originally been proposed.

The cuts would be part of a $1.3 billlion slice the legislature is planning to help balance our growing deficit.

We'll have more on these cuts on wilx.com and News 10 Today as soon as they become available.

    It could of been a lot worse.Some schools get 10,000 per student.I don't think that is needed.If I home schooled My kids it wouldn't cost that much.Schools continued to get,now continue to want.Maybe if utility companies and cost to schools for may things would be lower or they would be given discounts due to high usage,this would help as well.Tax payers have been drained to keep schools open.Once someones kids are out of school they should not have to pay school TAXES.The system we now have is way out of hand.Or when one retires to low incomes they should not have to even pay property tax as long as their home is paid for.Medicare should let people live,not keep taking from them with high costs.Just like jobs should remain in the country they are in.The USA can make anything we buy from other countries.All jobs need to come back here.This country could be so rich.If we continue to treat our own bad,We will fall.It could be a great country if greed would stop.
