Iowa GOP lawmakers offer education compromise
DES MOINES (AP) — House Republicans said Wednesday that they would agree to Democrats’ requests for bigger yearly increases in general funding for schools, if Senate Democrats agree to the House’s proposal for teacher salaries and incentives.
Sen. Herman Quirmbach, a Democrat from Ames who chairs the Senate education committee, said he would need time to review the House Republican proposal before saying if Democrats would accept the deal.
Senate Democrats and House Republicans have disagreed about how much to increase school funding and about how to implement Republican Gov. Terry Branstad’s proposed education overhaul that includes teacher salary increases and leadership incentives.
