State Supplemental Aid Disscussion

State Supplemental Aid Disscussion

Spencer, IA (KICD)–K-12 Education funding was discussed at Saturday’s Spencer Eggs & Issues gathering.
State Senator David Johnson of Ocheyedan says he and fellow Republicans in the Senate do not have a problem setting supplemental state aid two years out as Iowa Law states, but they do have a problem with a 6 percent increase.

State Representative Megan Hess of Spencer noted that a 6 percent increase would not be such an odd notion if it did not go straight to teacher salaries.

It was noted that 4th District Congressman Steve King will be on hand for Eggs & Issues on March 1st and Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds will attend the March 15th session.
Replays of Eggs & Issues can be seen on SMU Cable Channel 2 at 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, and 10:30 Saturday morning.
