A bill to rethink Colorado’s school funding system hits temporary snag

The bipartisan House Bill 1340 is sponsored by state Reps. Paul Lundeen and Alec Garnett and state Sens. Dominick Moreno and Owen Hill.

It is one of the several efforts underway to overhaul the state’s school funding system.

The last time the state reconsidered how it funded its schools was 1994.

“We never figured this was going to be easy,” said Lundeen, a Colorado Springs Republican. “Policy making is not always a linear process. But we’re committed.”

“We’re going to keep working in a bipartisan way to get this across the finish line,” said Garnett, a Denver Democrat.

The bill was previously given unanimous approval by the House of Representatives.
