DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Governor Terry Branstad is telling school officials when planning for next year to assume the Legislature will eventually approve his education funding proposal.

He has proposed no increase in basic state financing for locals schools.

Branstad also wants to offer preschool scholarships only for families who can't afford to pay themselves.

Right now, the proposals have stalled in the Legislature.
