Statement from State Sen. Ryan Mishler

State Sen. Ryan Mishler (R-Bremen), chair of the Senate Committee on Appropriations, made the following statement today regarding K-12 funding and the COVID-19 pandemic:

STATEHOUSE (June 17, 2020)
— "I'm glad we are able to fully fund schools at the level we budgeted for at this point, though we acknowledge there are many unknowns as we move forward.

"As it pertains to per-student funding, I am in favor of fully accommodating schools that have students who would otherwise be attending school in-person, but given the unknowns due to the pandemic situation, may need to attend virtually. As such, I support fully funding those students for this year as we wait to see what the full ramifications of the COVID-19 pandemic will be as it pertains to our schools."
