Howes Favors Back School Payments
State Representative Larry Howes of Walker says the legislature needs to pay the public schools some of the money owed them from previous budget cuts. Both the State House and Senate are working to repay the $430 million from the rainy day fund.
While Both the DFL leadership and Governor have opposed the move, as too soon following previous years budget deficits, Howes says the schools aren't complaining.
Representative Howes says they have more than enough money to help clean-up the books.
