We Have a Bill. I don't know who would be reading this at 1:45 AM on Sunday, May 17, 2015, but it appears that the conference committee has come to an agreement on a $400 million package.

The highlights of the package appear to be:

  • 1.5% on the formula for 2015-2016/2.0% on the formula for 2016-2017
  • Senate Facilities Package (Task Force Recommendation #1)
  • $9.5 million increase in QComp appropriation (Cap remains)
  • $30 million increase in School Readiness Program
  • $30 million increase in Early Childhood Scholarship Program
  • $4 million for Concurrent Enrollment
  • $2.5 million for Extended Time

Those are the major details of the agreement.  There is more there and I will pass those details along as they are revealed.
