Ritter wants to spend federal mineral dollars on public education

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

DENVER – Gov. Bill Ritter said Thursday he’s considering a plan to tap mineral rights money the state gets from the federal government to provide more funding for education across the state.Ritter said unless the state finds more money for schools, the education fund will go broke in the next five years.”We took a serious look at the budget and said we have a serious issue with where K-12 funding is over time. We really believe we have to do something different in protecting the integrity of the state education fund,” Ritter told editors and publishers at a Colorado Associated Press Editors and Reporters luncheon at the governor’s mansion.
