Funding to comply with Gannon looking like a house of cards

“Rhoades said he would welcome Democratic votes on the school finance bill, but the minority party’s current position of all new funding with no strings attached would be a non-starter for the Republican House majority.
Rhoades said getting¬†the majority to agree to even $70-90 million in new annual funding is ‘going to be really hard’ and so the amount of new money allocated versus the amount shifted from other sources to get to $129 million remains in flux.
‘There’s all kinds of things on the table about how do we minimize the new money, but how do we equalize,’ Rhoades said.
That leaves the leadership to carefully construct a house of cards that will have enough ancillary measures to attract the necessary Republican votes as is, or at least be stable enough to remain standing if some of the cards are removed.”¬†
