Lawmakers to unveil school spending plan today
Members of a House committee don't yet agree on how they should raise money for public education, but today they're going to discuss how to spend it.

A proposal the committee will unveil today would pump at least $700 million more into the system in the 2005-06 school year, including additional money for low-income and bilingual education students.

It also would require that payments to school districts be adjusted for inflation each year. In addition, the cost of education index, which accounts for regional differences, would be updated. It hasn't been updated in more than a decade.

The House Select Committee on Public School Finance, which is crafting an education bill, must agree on a plan for divvying up education money before that issue can go before the full House.
