State Sen. Burton sees a phase in rewrite of MAEP if #msleg takes it up

Lawmakers look ahead to big issues for 2018 session

You may remember that around this time last year there was a lot of talk about the possible rewrite of the school funding formula known as MAEP (Mississippi Adequate Education Program). Lawmakers didn’t act on it. No formula was rewritten last year. But many of the legislators say it could still happen in 2018.

“We’ve had a year to think about it,” said District 31 Sen.Terry Burton-R. “I think if we were to do something it would be a phased in period. Not an overnight rewrite.”
