Senator Joe Pennacchio (R-26), vice-chair of the Senate Select Committee on School Funding Fairness, applauded comments by the chairman of the Senate Budget & Appropriations Committee at today’s budget hearing that special education funding needs to be addressed as part of any school funding reforms:

Sen. Joe Pennacchio commended Senate Budget Committee Sarlo for stating that special education funding needs must be addressed in any school funding reforms. (

“During our Select Committee meetings, I discussed the need for the State to assume some of the great cost associated with special education, which greatly impacts local budgets and property tax bills. Having the State fully fund extraordinary special education expenses and fund a greater portion of all special education costs is a critical component of the Senate Republican school funding reform proposal.

“I’m glad to hear that Chairman Sarlo has expressed support for reforming how we fund special education statewide, and I look forward to discussing this and other Senate Republican school funding proposals.”
