Oregon Senate Approves Schools Budget

The Oregon Senate has approved a $5.7 billion budget for Oregon's K-12 schools. Education advocates say the amount, which is about the same schools received last year, is not enough.  Lane County Democrat Chris Edwards says it's the first of many miserable budget decisions lawmakers will have to make with looming $3 billion deficit. In a bold statement of bipartisanship, the Senate voted unanimously to move the public schools budget now so districts have more time to prepare for the next school year. The budget now moves to the House.
