The proposal, supported by a group of Democractic lawmakers, was developed to prevent proposals like Gov. Rick Snyder's proposal to use School Aid Funds for community college and public university 2012 budgets.
The School Aid Fund was established in 1963 following a constitutional amendment. According to reports, the funds were to have been used for "school districts, higher education and school employees' retirement systems."
