The state’s regional school superintendents edged closer to receiving their first paychecks since June. A state Senate committee passed a measure to pay the superintendents from the corporate personal property replacement tax, a source of local funding. The governor in June vetoed their salaries, suggesting they be paid from such sources.
Madison County regional superintendent Bob Daiber (pictured) says he and most of his colleagues have stuck it out and done their mandated duties.
The measure’s only remaining hurdle is the full Senate before being sent to the governor. It would pay the superintendents only through the end of this fiscal year, at which point a new funding source must be found.
