GOP Senator Says Warnings Of School Funding Cuts Is A ''Charade''


A Republican state senator says Democratic predictions of dramatic cuts in school funding are, quote, a “charade.” 

 

Democrats say schools will lose hundreds of millions of dollars next year unless the temporary income tax increase is made permanent.

 

Senator Dale Righter of Mattoon says that claim assumes no money can be cut elsewhere in the budget… but he says continuing fraud problems in Medicaid prove more cuts can be made.
