Clearly states it is the States responsibility to fund education and use fees, penalties and fines to do so. The county in which those fines are levied are to be used for education.
Thom has apparently forgotten this. Some of these fees and fines are set by the state, not the county.
He is however right that we COULD use local funds - if the county deemed it appropriate - but - considering how anti tax/fine the tea party is I am surprised he even thought of this as it goes against the tea party platform.
What he is doing is proposing a "tax and spend" policy at he county and city level.
Politicians are all alike - they like to spent other people's money.
