Sen. Les Seiler of Hastings and Hastings Public Schools Superintendent Craig Kautz will be looking closely at the state aid numbers this week after a compromise was made among urban senators.
"For the first time ever that I can remember Omaha and Lincoln got together and, as you know, when they get together they control," Seiler said Saturday. "They pushed through a bill that is probably not a very healthy bill, but gives them a lot more money than I think they deserve."
Seiler referenced LB 407, which would make changes to the Tax Equity and Educational Opportunities Support Act, or TEOSA, known most commonly as the state aid to schools program.
Each year, alterations are made to state funding for schools as revenues and expenses change for the state and for each individual school district.
