Dems to unveil their education proposal Wednesday
The word on the street is that the Republicans' committee substitute for HB 2 will come out Monday night. The Democrats will wait 24 hours "to let the media digest it" then unveil their plan, which will include broader tax relief and more money for schools. No one expects that the Democratic plan will pass, it's just something that Democrats will use to attack HB 2, which Dem's say is more about property tax relief than improving schools.
I wish I could divulge details on the Dem. plan now, but, godforbid Republicans read this blog, I don't want to give Republicans the weekend to consider the Democratic proposal. It's a good one that Republicans could potentially steal from and call it their own - and I support it - but I'll wait until the morning after the Republicans discuss the committee substitute.
