House budget proposal softer on K-12 education

The Washington State House released its budget proposal this morning, which contains fewer cuts to K-12 education funding but cuts deeper into higher education funding.

Unlike the Senate budget proposal, the House version spares levy equalization funding for districts with lower property values and cuts I-728 funding by 50 percent, as opposed to the 93 percent cut proposed by the Senate. The House also suspends cost of living increases from I-732, as did the Senate.
