COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Lawmakers pushing to overhaul Ohio’s convoluted school funding system to make it more equitable have come up short during the current legislative session.
The House approved a bipartisan proposal earlier this month. But Republicans in the Senate, who hold a majority, indicated senators won’t vote on the plan before the legislative process restarts in January.
Some GOP senators have questioned the accuracy and feasibility of the eventual price tag, an estimated $2 billion annually.
The Senate Finance Committee’s Republican chairman says he wants to work on the funding formula in conjunction with the state budget process next year.
