Speaker on school funding: ‘We stand with the Senate’

Attorney general incorrectly claims the Legislature cannot forward-fund K-12 education
JUNEAU – House Speaker Bryce Edgmon on Thursday released the following statement responding to the attorney general’s assertion that a decision by the Legislature to forward-fund education is unconstitutional:

“The governor is subjecting students, parents, and teachers to an unnecessary legal and political fight. We stand with the Senate and remain firm in our belief that the Legislature acted in a legal and appropriate fashion when it forward funded K-12 schools last year.”
– House Speaker Bryce Edgmon (I-Dillingham)
