Introduced by Rep. Bruce Dammeier (R) on January 17, 2012, requires that appropriations for all K-12 basic education, and for all K-12 educational programs, be enacted into law before the legislature takes action on other general fund appropriations. This act takes effect immediately.
Referred to the House Education Appropriations & Oversight Committee on January 17, 2012.
1) Re: 2012 House Bill 2533 (Prioritizing expenditures for K-12 education within the state appropriations process) by kmortland on January 18, 2012 This is a good start. But funding education first, without the commitment to fund education adequately, improve little. Indeed, it may cause legislators to be uncommonly cautious and to underfund education, while looking toward unknown needs of other programs.
Underfunding education first solves nothing.
