Iowa Panel Approves Education Bill

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- A bill increasing funding for educational programming and infrastructure in Iowa has won the support of a divided legislative panel.

Democrats on the Senate Appropriations Committee voted 13-7 on Monday in favor of the appropriation, with all Republicans voting against it. The measure is now eligible for debate on the Senate floor.

The bill would allot $986 million to go toward Iowa's educational efforts for fiscal year 2015. It includes funds appropriated specifically to the Iowa's Department of Education and the Board of Regents, among other programs and organizations. Sen. Brian Shoenjahn, an Arlington Democrat, says the appropriation is an $87 million increase from last year's budget.

Republican Sen. Jake Chapman, of Adel, opposed the bill, saying he couldn't support growing government at a faster rate than household income growth.
