Legislators from the state's Education and Cultural Affairs Committee join us to discuss the status of funding for K-12 public education in Maine, and what the outlook is for meeting or getting closer to the 55 percent state funding for education. They’ll also address the debate over the 3% surtax that voters approved to help fund schools.

Guests:  Rebecca Millett (D-Cumberland), Representing Senate District 2; she is on the Education and Cultural Affairs Committee

Rep. Phyllis Ginzler, (R-Bridgton), Ranking Minority Member of the Education and Cultural Affairs Committee
