    Mason schools are in a bind. The recent budget woes in Lansing are impacted them to the tun of a $655,000 deficit. Despite closing a school and planning for a reduction in funding the school district is facing a seemingly impossible problem. Superintendant Jim Harvey is not optimistic about the districts situation, fearing that schools are in a crisis they may not be able to get out of. Mason schools face deficit. .

    Mason schools are not alone. The State House recently passed a bill that would take stimulus funds meant for next years budget to lessen, or soften, the blow to students this year. The hope is to allow the schools more time to create solutions to their budget woes and protect the futures of students in hard hit school districts. The bill would also restore $52 million cut previously in the yearthe money however come from the Michigan Future Fund, which for all intensive purposes doesnt exist. In other words, schools would be funded with money that may, or may not ever, exist. Another provision in the bill would force the school aid budget to be finished in June instead of October, in order to give the school districts the knowledge of the cuts they would receive. The bill will most likely not be passed by the Senate. House votes to reduce K-12 cuts

    The problem however, is not that easily solved. The stimulus money that would soften the blow this year, was originally supposed to soften the bigger blow forcasted to come next year. Senate Majority Leader Mike Bishop, says passing this bill would only serve to push this problem father down the road, the legislature would be borrowing money that can not be refunded. this bill has lead to yet another round of finger-pointing between Granholm and the Senate. Granholm says the Senate Republicans have taken a "no, no, no" stance, the Senate Republicans have said the same about the Govenor. Each side has found support for their stance and it would seem that the gridlock in the Legislature is far from being ended as the House thinks Now and the Senate thinks Later, eway its not going to be pretty.
