$14 Million Increase in Funding
Thanks to you and the roughly 40,000 e-mails that were sent in from the Catholic Action Network, Catholic schools will see an increase in funding in the 2013-14 state budget. Lawmakers have printed the final bills that will make up the state’s $135 billion budget – expected to be approved before March 29. Included in the budget is a nearly $14 million increase in funding for mandated services reimbursement.
Moreover, lawmakers provide $4.5 million in a new funding stream to our schools for safety equipment – in response to the horrific school shootings that have occurred around the country.
