Rural counties like the ones who would benefit from this often have land use policies that help farmers but penalize schools that don't do well with the calculations that divide up state Ed. funding. This bill would have minimal fiscal impact statewide but could go a long way to make state division of ed funding fairer for small rural school divisions.

anyone know anything about a revised FIS or new language that would make the FIS more amendable to the budget analysts?
