Washington lawmakers are already days into a special session, but they still need to deal with a court mandate to fund basic education.
Lawmakers met today to discuss options. They’re torn between competing plans to give more funding to schools.
In the McCleary decision, the state Supreme Court ruled that the Legislature was not fulfilling its constitutional obligation to fully fund education.Lawmakers need to find a way to do that before 2019.
Republican Senator Bruce Dammeier says lawmakers have unfairly burdened school districts.
