State Senate OKs Compromise on Plan to Fix Education System

The Washington state Senate on Tuesday passed a plan for fixing the way the state pays for education, mirroring a measure passed earlier in the state House.

Many lawmakers believe the bill will satisfy the state Supreme Court’s order to finish the work it demanded in its 2012 McCleary decision.

However, the bill was panned by many in the Senate as doing too little to fix a problem that has been hanging over the state for years.
