Iowa Senate to debate a spending bill

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

The Iowa Senate plans to debate a spending bill for the fiscal year beginning in July.

The bill houses a number of measures including a four percent increase in funding for school districts.

In addition, the bill has $3 million dollars dedicated to the Malcolm Price Laboratory school at the University of Northern Iowa.

This money would be used to keep the school open, and fund a study to determine whether the school should be closed.
