Education Law In Flux

Laramie, Wy – A trial started Monday with lawyers for school districts arguing the model for funding education in Wyoming is unconstitutional. At the same time a committee from the legislature is re-working the funding system. The House chair of the committee, Jeff Wasserburger, says his committee should take care of many of the concerns that will come up during the trail, but the lawsuit focuses on school construction too. Wasserburger says that is not something the legislature is taking on right now.
Wasserburger says they are reworking the funding system now because it is required by law, not because of the trial.
