The Arizona Senate approved a bill to raise the aggregate expenditure limit for public schools, preventing public district schools from needing to cut nearly $1.2 billion from their budgets they were already allocated last legislative session.

The vote came after the House passed the bill earlier last week, and just before the March 1 deadline when schools statewide would have needed to cut 16% from their budgets as required by the state Constitution.

<

The delay in Legislators passing the bill led many school leaders to let the public and Legislators know that those cuts could lead to staff and teacher layoffs, school closing months early and more cost effective or canceled graduation ceremonies.

The Arizona Dept. of Health Services reminds Arizonans that they’ll be providing weekly instead of daily updates on confirmed cases of COVID-19 and COVID-19 related deaths starts on March 2, 2022.

Feb. 17, 2022:

Arizona teachers are concerned that the Senate is having trouble finding enough votes to pass a bill to avoid nearly $1.2 billion in school budget cuts statewide on money already allocated for this school year.

Several Republican Legislators have stated that they will not act to raise the aggregate expenditure limit for this school year until a until the court releases a ruling on Prop. 208, which is unrelated to the aggregate expenditure limit.

Confirmed cases of COVID-19 rose to 1,959,866 today in Arizona, up from 1,957,085 yesterday, and 27,398 people in Arizona have died from COVID-19 since the pandemic began.

In Maricopa County there are 1,235,746 confirmed cases of COVID-19, 246,962 in Pima County127,706 in Pinal County61,676 in Yuma County56,368 in Mohave County47,056 in Yavapai County42,720 in Coconino County37,259 in Navajo County30,548 in Cochise County21,578 in Apache County16,700 in Gila County16,497 in Santa Cruz County11,795 in Graham County5,080 in La Paz County and 2,1759 in Greenlee County.

Arizona Senate President Karen Fann is still seeking enough votes to pass her Senate Concurrent Resolution 1050 or House Concurrent Resolution 2039, sponsored by House Speaker Rusty Bowers, which the Arizona House approved yesterday that would let school districts in the state exceed the aggregate expenditure limit by $1,154,208,997 for the 2021-2022 school year.

If one of the measures to raise the aggregate expenditure limit for this school year is not approved by March 1, then district schools statwide will have to cut school budgets by up to 16%, or a total statewide of nearly $1.2 billion, by next month in line with Arizona Constitution requirements.

School leaders have said could lead to teacher and staff furloughs, a shortened school year and could lead to scaled back graduation ceremonies.

Several Republican Legislators have stated that they will not act to raise the aggregate expenditure limit for this school year until a until an issue they are concerned about is resolved.

Sen. J.D. Mesnard is one who has said he’s waiting on the final court ruling on voter-approved Prop. 208, even though no Prop. 208 funds are part of current year school district budgets, according to the AZ Mirror article.

Maricopa County Superior Court Judge John Hannah told state lawmakers last week that he has until March 10, 2022 to make a ruling on whether Prop. 208 is constitutional.

Confirmed cases of COVID-19 rose to 1,957,085 today in Arizona, up from 1,954,908 yesterday, and 27,189 people in Arizona have died from COVID-19 since the pandemic began.

In Maricopa County there are 1,234,151 confirmed cases of COVID-19, 246,502 in Pima County127,523 in Pinal County61,622 in Yuma County56,307 in Mohave County47,001 in Yavapai County42,650 in Coconino County37,180 in Navajo County30,489 in Cochise County21,511 in Apache County16,678 in Gila County16,481 in Santa Cruz County11,750 in Graham County5,071 in La Paz County and 2,169 in Greenlee County.

The Arizona House of Representatives approved House Concurrent Resolution 2039, sponsored by House Speaker Rusty Bowers, which would let school districts in the state exceed the aggregate expenditure limit by $1,154,208,997 for the 2021-2022 school year.

The Arizona House of Representatives voted to approve House Concurrent Resolution 2039 with 45 ayes, 14 nays and one member not voting, which means it received the required approval by two-thirds of members.

House Concurrent Resolution 2039 now heads to the Senate where it needs a two-thirds vote to override the aggregate expenditure limit this year.

A similar measure, Senate Concurrent Resolution 1050, sponsored by Senate President Karen Fann, was first read on the Senate Floor yesterday.

If one of the measures or another like it is not approved by March 1, then district schools will have to cut school budgets by up to 16% by next month in line with Arizona Constitution requirements.

If the aggregate expenditure limit is not raised this year, public schools statewide will need to cut nearly $1.2 billion from their budgets.

Confirmed cases of COVID-19 rose to 1,954,908 today in Arizona, up from 1,953,168 yesterday, and 27,186 people in Arizona have died from COVID-19 since the pandemic began.

In Maricopa County there are 1,233,036 confirmed cases of COVID-19, 246,181 in Pima County127,319 in Pinal County61,558 in Yuma County56,231 in Mohave County46,908 in Yavapai County42,581 in Coconino County37,138 in Navajo County30,416 in Cochise County21,479 in Apache County16,625 in Gila County16,465 in Santa Cruz County11,741 in Graham County5,065 in La Paz County and 2,165 in Greenlee County.

Feb. 14, 2022

Arizona Senate President Karen Fann and Arizona House Speaker Rusty Bowers introduced measures today to raise the aggregate expenditure limit for public district schools, which if approved before March 1, would let schools use the funding already allocated to them for this school year.

At 1:15 p.m. today, Senate Concurrent Resolution 1050, sponsored by Senate President Karen Fann, was first read on the Senate Floor. SCR 1050 would let school districts in the state exceed the aggregate expenditure limit by $1,154,208,997 for the 2021-2022 school year by two-thirds vote of the Arizona Senate and Arizona House of Representatives. House Concurrent Resolution 2039, sponsored by House Speaker Rusty Bowers, would so the same.

The House Rules and Senate Rules committees voted unanimously for the measures to be introduced to suspend the aggregate expenditure limit.

If one of the measures or another like it is not approved by March 1, then district schools will have to cut school budgets by up to 16% by next month in line with Arizona Constitution requirements.

If the aggregate expenditure limit is not raised this year, public schools statewide will need to cut nearly $1.2 billion from their budgets.

School leaders have said could lead to teacher and staff furloughs, a shortened school year and could lead to scaled back graduation ceremonies.

The bills under consideration would only suspend the expenditure limit for this school year, and not address raising or repealing the spending cap for public district schools going forward like Rep. Jennifer Pawlik’s House Bill 2335 would have.

While House Speaker Bowers said he thought the bill would pass in the House of Representatives, Senate President Fann was not so sure that would happen in the Senate.

Earlier this session, House Concurrent Resolution 2012, was introduced by Rep. Jennifer Pawlik with 20 co-sponsors, which would waive the aggregate expenditure limit for this school year. Also, House Bill 2335, sponsored by Rep. Pawlik and 20 co-sponsors, would repeal the state law on the aggregate spending limit. Neither bill has been heard yet on the floor or in committee.

Last week, Republican Legislative leaders said they would not act to raise the aggregate expenditure limit for this school year until a until the courts make a final ruling on voter-approved Prop. 208, even though no Prop. 208 funds are part of current year school district budgets.

But this week, Speaker Bowers said that the bills to raise the aggregate expenditure limit would not be tied to a court ruling on Prop. 208, vouchers or anything else.

The aggregate expenditure limit was approved by voters in 1980, and caps total spending on education at then-current levels, with annual adjustments for inflation and student growth.

This year, schools exceeded the aggregate expenditure limit when more students returned to in-person classes this year after a sharp decline in enrollment last year during the COVID-19 pandemic and shift to online or remote learning, and after lawmakers in 2018 renewed through 2041 a six tenths of a cent sales tax levy that provides money for teachers salaries through the Classroom Site Fund that would have expired, but then forgot to make those funds exempt from the spending cap like the original voter-approved Prop. 301 did in 2000.

Confirmed cases of COVID-19 rose to 1,953,168 today in Arizona, up from 1,950,483 yesterday, and 27,181 people in Arizona have died from COVID-19 since the pandemic began.

In Maricopa County there are 1,232,073 confirmed cases of COVID-19, 245,956 in Pima County127,193 in Pinal County61,497 in Yuma County56,1320 in Mohave County46,849 in Yavapai County42,555 in Coconino County37,066 in Navajo County30,371 in Cochise County21,449 in Apache County16,612 in Gila County16,457 in Santa Cruz County11,736 in Graham County5,057 in La Paz County and 2,165 in Greenlee County.

Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman urged Arizona Legislators to raise the aggregate expenditure limit so public schools can use the money already allocated to them for this school year to pay teachers’ salaries and other expenses during her State of Education speech yesterday to the Senate Education Committee.

If Arizona Legislators don’t do so before March 1, 2022, then according to the state Constitution, all public district schools will need to cut 16% of their budget in the last few months of the school year, which school leaders have said could lead to teacher and staff furloughs, a shortened school year and could lead to scaled back graduation ceremonies.

Several Republican Legislators have stated that they will not act to raise the aggregate expenditure limit for this school year until a until the courts make a final ruling on voter-approved Prop. 208, even though no Prop. 208 funds are part of current year school district budgets.

Maricopa County Superior Court Judge John Hannah told state lawmakers that he will not make an immediate ruling on whether Prop. 208 is constitutional, which Republican lawmakers have sought before they consider lifting the aggregate expenditure limit for public schools, The Arizona Republic reports.

Judge Hannah says he has until March 10 to make his ruling. But if the Arizona Legislature does not lift the spending cap by March 1, school boards will have to cut school budgets by up to 16% by next month, in line with Arizona Constitution requirements.

A large expansion to Empowerment Scholarship Accounts, also known as vouchers that pay for students’ private school educations with public taxpayer money was approved yesterday along party lines in the Senate Education Committee meeting.

The Arizona Education Association, a labor union with over 20,000 members, continues to advocate against the aggregate expenditure limit, which if not raised this year would mean budget cuts of nearly $1.2 billion for Arizona public district schools.

This comes in as Arizona, and many other states, continue to struggle to find teachers to fill classrooms.

Confirmed cases of COVID-19 rose to 1,926,240 today in Arizona, up from 1,922,450 yesterday, and 26,882 people in Arizona have died from COVID-19 since the pandemic began.

Judge Hannah says he has until March 10 to make his ruling. But if the Arizona Legislature does not lift the spending cap by March 1, school boards will have to cut school budgets by up to 16% by next month, in line with Arizona Constitution requirements.

If the aggregate expenditure limit is not lifted, public schools statewide will need to cut nearly $1.2 billion from their budgets, which could mean school ending early this year due to a lack of money for teacher and staff salaries and cutting graduation ceremonies.

If the spending cap is not raised, Mesa Public Schools will need to cut $73 million in expenditures before the end of this school year, the East Valley Tribune reports.

If the Arizona Legislature does not act by March 1, a Kyrene Schools governing board member said the district must remove $17 million from their budget before the end of the school year, Gilbert Public Schools would need to cut $40 million, Chandler Unified would need to slash $54 million, the East Valley Tribune reports.

Arizona school leaders are concerned that the Arizona Legislature will not lift the aggregate expenditure limit by the March 1, 2022 deadline, forcing public schools to cut nearly $1.2 billion from their budgets this school year and severely impacting the services they provide to students.

House Concurrent Resolution 2012, introduced by Rep. Jennifer Pawlik with 20 co-sponsors, would waive the aggregate expenditure limit for this school year. House Bill 2335, sponsored by Rep. Pawlik and 20 co-sponsors, would repeal the state law on the aggregate spending limit. Neither bill has been heard yet on the floor or in committee.

“I am disappointed in their inaction,” said Brad Sale, superintendent of the Parker Unified School District in a Parker Pioneer article.  “The leadership in both chambers have had the opportunity to pass bills onto committee, but have chosen not to do so.”

Parker Unified would need to cut $2.1 million from it’s budget if the aggregate expenditure limit is not raised.

Sale told the Parker Pioneer the cuts would be much worse than the cuts made during the Great Recession of 2008 and would have a devastating impact.

Confirmed cases of COVID-19 rose to 1,886,541 today in Arizona, up from 1,878,211 yesterday, and 26,369 people in Arizona have died from COVID-19 since the pandemic began.
