Senate passes legislation to create school-funding task force

"On a 26-23 vote, the Senate passed legislation that will create a task force to work on school funding issues, while promising to correct funding gaps identified in the Washington State Supreme Court’s McCleary decision by the time lawmakers adjourn in 2017."

"'The reality is, this bill is better than no bill,' said Sen. Bruce Dammeier, R-Puyallup, one of the Senate Republicans’ past leaders on school-funding issues.

'Nobody is more disappointed than I that with this action, we are officially pushing out the solution another year,' Dammeier said."
