ABSTRACT
The article reports that with a $13 billion price tag for the cost of bringing Arkansas public schools up to state standards, two lawmakers proposed a solution to pay for the projects. Senator Dave Bisbee, and Senator Shane Broadway say their proposal would place the burden of funding school facilities on both the state and school districts. In 2002, the Arkansas Supreme Court ruled that the state's method of funding public education is neither adequate nor constitutional. Funding school facilities is expected to be the major task of the General Assembly when they convene for their biennial meeting on January 10, 2005.
