Assemblywoman Addie J. Russell wants to reintroduce legislation to amend the state school aid formula.

The school aid reform bill Mrs. Russell, D-Theresa, sponsored during the last session would benefit poorer schools, according to a released statement, by providing money based on data from the past five years and eliminating minimum aid allocation for wealthy districts, among other items.

“This legislation is essential to ensuring that children in the most disadvantaged parts of this state receive even the most basic education,” Mrs. Russell said in the statement.
