Comment on Washington voters step up for schools and support $5 billion in local levies by League of Education Votershttp://educationvoters.org/2014/02/18/washington-voters-step-up-for-schools-and-support-5-billion-in-local-levies/#comment-7155 Mon, 24 Feb 2014 20:44:48 +0000 http://educationvoters.org/?p=22125#comment-7155 Good point, Russ! Our policy analyst Jake says there is a difference, though, because while the legislature has cut more than $1B from education, the money they added last year was not previously in existence. That is, the $1B was new money that funded programs and areas that had not been funded before, so none of the money that was previously cut was actually restored.
