NASHVILLE (AP) — Legislation that would specify restrictions on the use of state education finance funds is advancing in the Senate.
The measure sponsored by Senate Education Chairwoman Jamie Woodson, a Knoxville Republican, passed the committee on Tuesday.
The legislation would prohibit a county or municipality from using such funds to reduce local operating funds or local taxes.
The companion bill has been retained in the House Finance Committee since last week.
