Rep. Sobecki Votes to Pass the Fair School Funding Plan

State Rep. Lisa Sobecki (D-Toledo) last week voted to pass House Bill (HB) 305 "Fair School Funding Plan", a bill she co-sponsored, after speaking in favor of the bill during floor debate.

"Today was a long time coming. 'The Fair School Funding Plan' is understandable and properly funds Ohio's public schools. Ohio students have waited long enough for a new, fair school funding formula," said Rep. Sobecki. "I'm proud to have supported HB 305 to not only properly fund the school districts I represent, but all 610 districts throughout Ohio."

During her floor speech, Rep. Sobecki highlighted some of the struggles Washington Local and Toledo Public face due to inadequate funding, including capped state funding, high homeless rates, and raising cost in transportation for special education students. Rep. Sobecki believes that the new formula passed today helps school districts provide a better educational experience for their students.

HB 305 passed by a vote of 84-8 and will now be referred to the Senate for their consideration. A companion bill, Senate Bill (SB) 376 is pending in the Senate Finance Committee.
