Democrats who control the
Indiana House are prepared to consider changes to their proposed one-year state
and Means Committee planned to consider amendments to the bill today, and then
possibly vote to send the measure to the full House for consideration.
The one-year plan would increase spending on schools by a statewide average of
2 percent, and ensure that every district gets as much or more money next year
than they got this year.
Republicans, who favor the traditional two-year budget, say the plan spends far
too much in one year. They also say the spending levels could not be sustained
in a second year without a huge jump in state revenues or a tax increase.
