The article reports on the failure of finalizing a school funding bill in Dallas, Texas after education lobbyists walked away from lawmakers due to inadequate equalization measures in the proposal. The ruling stated that a mandatory cap of 1.50 dollars per 100 dollars of valuation on local school district property taxes is unconstitutional because several districts have reached the cap, causing local discretion to be invaluable.
