Bill to End Local Contribution for School

JUNEAU- Representative Tammie Wilson wants to eliminate the local contribution from boroughs for education funding. The House Education Committee heard the first reading of the bill, sponsored by Wilson, on Wednesday. She says it's unconstitutional that organized boroughs must provide tax revenue to local schools. Homer Representative, Paul Seaton says, without local contributions, the state may be forced to cut important school programs. Wilson says, it goes against promises made by the state.
