OLYMPIA, Wasj. – A state legislative committee has signed-off on a progress report to the Washington Supreme Court on school funding.

Senator David Frockt, a Seattle Democrat, chairs the committee.

The court found in 2012 that the way the state pays for public schools was unconstitutional.

The report the committee approved yesterday emphasizes that new spending initiatives are more likely to happen during the next legislative session.

That’s when lawmakers write a new two-year budget.
