Governor renews call for MAEP rewrite

JACKSON – Gov. Phil Bryant renewed the call to rewrite the state’s school funding formula – the Mississippi Adequate Education Program – as part of his $6 billion budget recommendation released late Wednesday.

The budget proposal unveiled Wednesday by Bryant is $32 million or .05 percent less than what the Legislature appropriated during the 2017 session for the current fiscal year.
