Fiscal Detail and Notes
This legislation will increase the total cost of K-12 public education in fiscal year 2014-15.  Unless General Fund appropriations are provided to fully fund the cost of public charter schools that are authorized by the Maine Charter School Commission, this legislation will result in local school administrative units receiving less state subsidy for the 2014-2015 school year then would have been received  if this provision was not in place.  The impact to individual local school administrative units can not be determined at this time.
