Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s budget and legal team introduced a new option to fund public education.
Under House Bill 1001, Dunleavy wants to repeal an appropriation made last year under House Bill 287 for the upcoming school year — this is known as forward funding — then place it in the operating budget for fiscal 2020, which begins July 1.
The bill got its first hearing on Monday in the House Finance Committee during the fifth day of the special session Dunleavy called last week. It will get a similar hearing on Tuesday in the Senate Finance Committee.
