Capitol Conversation: Rewriting The School Finance Act

A major re-write of how Colorado funds K through 12 schools is now making its way through the state legislature. It’s an annual bill – but this year one state lawmaker wants to add even more money to it despite the objections of others.

KUNC’s Bente Birkeland breaks down the bill with fellow statehouse reporters and talks about its prospects for passage.

Bente Birkeland has been reporting on state legislative issues for KUNC and Rocky Mountain Community Radio since 2006. Originally, from Minnesota, Bente likes to hike and ski in her spare time. She keeps track of state politics throughout the year but is especially busy during the annual legislative session from January through early May.
