A cleverly-worded amendment that would benefit some charters magically appeared in the State Budget bill. No one seems to claim ownership-not me, not me, they say. However, Representative Teresa Fedor was suspicious. Even ECOT didn’t claim it.

Fortunately, Senator Peggy Lehner is quoted in The Dispatch as saying she has begun to draft an amendment to remove this provision.

“If it indeed does create some kind of staggering loophole, I think we need to deal with it,” said Sen. Peggy Lehner, R-Kettering, said Wednesday, adding she already was drafting an amendment to strip it out of the bill.
