Over at the Oregon House Democrats' blog, State Rep. Larry Galizio - who recently contributed The Minnis Plan for Schools: Not Good Enough here at BlueOregon - has followed up with a piece describing an alternative school funding plan:
Despite media claims that the Minnis scheme is the only K-12 school funding proposal that's been offered, there have been a whole host of viable policy proposals offered this session by Oregon House Democrats. Unfortunately, the Republican-controlled House leadership decides which bills receive hearings and which won't. More than one viable school funding plan sits in the dark in Salem - never to see the light of day; at least not in this session.
HB 3498, a bill co-sponsored by 22 House Democrats, which currently sits in the House Revenue Committee, is illustrative of the Democratic school funding alternatives that have been crafted.
