House Bill Introductions.  There were 54 bill introductions in the House today with five of the bills being related to education funding.  Two bills--HF 1 (Selcer) and HF 53 (Woodard)--deal with paying back the education aids payment shift.  HF 1 would pay back the shift in this fiscal year and set the aids payment schedule at 90% current year/10% subsequent year.  This would take over $500 million off the table for on-going funding for other state government programs, including the addition of more funding to the education-funding base, which has lost considerable ground to inflation over the past two decades.  HF 53 would require a 60% vote by both bodies of the Legislature before the payment schedule could be altered from the 90%/10% framework outlined in the statutes.
