Education Groups Decry, Kasich Defends School Funding Guarantee Vetoes

Wealthy school districts and those heavily reliant on personal property tax reimbursement payments will not receive nearly $95 million in funding guarantees that were included in the budget.

Among the 44 items Gov. John Kasich vetoed in the two-year spending bill (HB 64*) were guarantees that districts receive at least 20% of the per pupil formula amount and that schools would be held harmless from the phase out of TPP replacement funds that will be eliminated during the budget cycle.
