Republicans Want to Change School Funding Timing

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Republican lawmakers are working on a measure to change the rules governing when the Legislature determines Iowa school funding.

House Speaker Kraig Paulsen told reporters Thursday that he is working on a bill that would end the requirement that lawmakers establish school funding levels 18 months before the start of a school year. Last spring, legislators ended their session without following the law and setting funding levels for the 2013-14 school year.

Paulsen says the change was needed because the current policy limits options for future legislators.

Democratic lawmakers say the Legislature should keep the current system. They say they have sought to follow the 18-month rule since it was put in place in 1995.
