Arkansas Uniform Property Tax for Schools, Amendment 1 (1996)
|Uniform Property Tax for Schools|
In 2005, fourteen Arkansas school districts filed a lawsuit against the State of Arkansas contending that they were given less money than they should have been given under the terms of Amendment 1. The schools claim that in 2006, they should have received $16 million more than they did receive, saying also that the state uses money to offset general revenue dollars that should go to education.
The 2009 session of the Arkansas State Legislature approved a public school budget of $2.7 billion for fiscal year 2010 to cover the per-student "foundational funding" that is required by the Arkansas Supreme Court. $940 million of that $2.7 billion is supposed to come from Amendment 74 funds.
