House Republican Budget Spends More than Governor's Budget Proposal
Indiana House Republicans revealed a budget plan Friday that spends significantly more than Governor Pence has proposed.
Indiana House Ways and Means Committee Chairman, Dr. Tim Brown, says education funding is the top priority.
The House proposal would restore school funding cuts made by then-Governor Daniels three years ago, and add money.
The proposal includes 344 million more for K through 12 education.
Governor Pence has proposed a one-percent increase for schools, which would still leave them below 2010 levels.
