The final text of CACR 12, this year's education-funding amendment
Key vote on education funding this week
Agreement reached on education-funding amendment
Here is the final revised language of CACR 12, this year's proposed education funding amendment for the state constitution. The House and Senate leadership and Gov. John Lynch have agreed on this wording. Now it has to get 239 votes in the House (it should pass the Senate easily) before it can go to the voters this fall:
[Art.] 5-c [Public Education]. In fulfillment of the provisions with respect to education set forth in Part II, Article 83, the legislature shall have the responsibility to maintain a system of public elementary and secondary education and to mitigate local disparities in educational opportunity and fiscal capacity. †In furtherance thereof, the Legislature shall have the full power and authority†to make reasonable standards for elementary and secondary public education and standards of accountability and to determine the amount of, and the methods†of raising and distributing, state funding for public education.
