Members of the Union County Board of Education Finance Committee voted unanimously yesterday, to send a $96.5 million dollar budget recommendation to the full School Board for approval next Tuesday, May 1. If the plan is approved, the School Board will present it in the form of a budget request to the Board of County Commissioners in May. The proposed budget increases for County funding would make up for the shortfall in state funds.
