The state Senate’s proposal to appropriate the Commonwealth’s discretionary funds from the American Rescue Plan Act completely gutted nearly $200 million in funding for the MTA’s public education priorities, preK-16, that had been included in the House of Representatives’ ARPA legislation. Specifically, the Senate’s plan eliminated $75 million for public higher education capital infrastructure projects and $100 million for upgrades to ventilation systems and other facilities in preK-12 schools. The Senate proposal also eliminated $10 million to support efforts to increase teacher diversity.
