(INDIANA STATEHOUSE) - The Indiana house will vote today or Wednesday on a bill aimed at cushioning the blow of a $300 million dollar school funding cut.
Governor Daniels ordered the cuts in December, saying the state has cut everywhere else it can to offset a $1.8 billion drop in expected tax collection over the life of the two-year state budget.
Education Chairman Greg Porter's (D-Indianapolis) bill would allow schools to use up to 5% of the tax dollars they collect for capital projects to pay utility bills and insurance premiums.
