During a House Appropriations committee this week the Education Labor Relations Board said they will be able to absorb expected reductions to their budget. The Board facilitates labor peace between schools and their employees. For the coming fiscal year it’s proposed the Board get one-point-six-million dollars, which is a decrease of nearly sixty-thousand from previous year.
The Board says they’ll absorb the cut by leaving a Springfield position vacant. Representatives in the appropriations meeting also heard from Agriculture Education, Regional Offices of Education, Regional Safe Schools and others.
