The Mississippi Senate reversed itself Friday on a bill to restore $45 million to the K-12 public education budget.
The chamber approved a plan that, instead, would give back $28 million to schools struggling with operations after a series of spending cuts.
The new plan calls for taking $58 million from the health care trust fund and spreading the money across numerous programs and agencies, including education.
