Not there yet: Ed rewrite ‘matter of timing’

The 2017 session is scheduled to end April 2, but no new proposal to pay for education has been rolled out. That could mean lawmakers would be working against the clock, if they proceed with efforts to vote before going home on a new plan to pay for education in the state. House Speaker Philip Gunn, R-Clinton, has previously said there’s a possibility they could come back shortly after the regular session ends to address the matter.

“Everything depends on timing,” said Gunn’s chief of staff, Nathan Wells.
