On Saturday, Democratic Rep. Tony Exum Sr. will be holding a town hall to discuss the School Finance Reform Act.
From the Denver Post:
The new finance formula would revise the way money is distributed to schools, with greater emphasis on at-risk students and English-language learners and increased transparency in the way funds are spent. It would go into effect only with passage of an initiative for a $1.1 billion tax increase.
Exum is the first-term representative for Colorado Springs' House District 17, which covers the southeastern past of the city.
He will be speaking for an hour, starting at 10:30 in the morning at Sand Creek Library, 1821 S. Academy Boulevard (map here).
