OK State Senator proposes bill that would end federal funding for public schools

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. — An Oklahoma State Senator has proposed a bill that would phase out the use of federal funding for public education.

Senate Bill 863, written by Republican David Bullard, would create a timeline that would gradually end the use of federal funding for students in pre-kindergarten though twelfth grade.

The ten-year plan would also include “a projected need for state funds to replace the federal funds.”

If Senate Bill 863 is passed and approved, it would immediately take effect. The next legislative session begins Feb. 6.
