Education and Local Aid

Education and Local Aid

My top two funding priorities every year are Chapter 70 state aid to cities and towns for K-12 education and unrestricted local aid.

Education is the best investment we can make for our children and Chapter 70 financial aid is the foundation of state commitment to an educated society and productive workforce. In addition to focusing on school funding, I filed H468 to facilitate changing secondary school starting times for the health and safety of our students. Later school times can also benefit students academically. After editing by the Committee on Education, it is now before the House Committee on Ways and Means.

Unrestricted local aid from the state provides essential funding to supplement municipal revenue. This helps take some of the burden off of homeowners and local business.
