Final Legislative and Budget Actions. Legislative Report No. 3
Gaines, Gale F.
Southern Regional Education Board (SREB)
The Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) follows education budgets and legislation during regular and special legislative sessions. The Legislative Reports follow education and budget issues from governors' proposals through final legislative actions in each of the 16 SREB states. The reports include bill numbers and legislative Web site addresses, a feature that allows state legislators and staff to access current legislation quickly. This report presents final actions in Alabama, Georgia, Maryland, and West Virginia. It includes a summary of a special session in Arkansas that was called to address a court ruling on the school finance system. Plaintiffs contended that the state had not done enough to address an earlier ruling, and the court agreed. It also includes updates from Virginia, Texas, and North Carolina.
