It took some time and a few attempts at a vote and it still hast to pass the Senate but the House did approve education funding reforms on Monday. The votes finally came together to pass a compromise education funding bill. The bill moves forward with all schools getting more money. A contentious part for Democrats was approving the bill that now contains a 75 million dollar tax credit for donations towards private school scholarships. But Minority Leader Jim Durkin says when no one gets their way then the bill should been seen as a good compromise.



The bill has to pass muster in the Senate and the Governor will have to add his signature.
