Borough wants to stop local funding of education

(FAIRBANKS) The Fairbanks North Star Borough Assembly is supporting the idea of the Borough not paying to fund schools.

That's the same as the measure by State Representative Tammie Wilson concerning education funding.

Only residents of organized boroughs help pay for schools with their property taxes. People who live outside the boundary of organized boroughs don't pay, and the state makes up the difference.

Representative Wilson says it's the states  responsibility to pick up the whole tab, not just when they want to or when there is extra money.
