A South Dakota legislative panel is discussing a plan that would give school districts more state financial aid than Gov. Dennis Daugaard has recommended.
The Republican governor's proposed budget would boost state aid to schools by 3 percent next year.
But a proposal by a legislative study committee would instead increase state aid to schools by 3.8 percent, which would put spending per student back where it was before budget cuts were made three years ago.
The House Education Committee plans to vote on the proposal Wednesday. However, a final decision on state financial aid to schools won't be made until the Legislature approves a state budget in March.
