The Florida Senate education appropriations subcommittee has released its budget plan, just one day after the House unveiled its version.
The Senate proposal includes a 3 percent increase in per student funding, to $7,122.85. That's just slightly below the House recommendation of $7,130, a number aimed at setting a historic level (not accounting for inflation).
But like the House, the Senate comes in short of the $7,176 that Gov. Rick Scott wanted.
