Renee Basick has the story from Jefferson City.
Money that once went to blur racial boundaries in Missouri schools would become more evenly distributed across the state as a part of Senator Ted House's bill.
House's legislation is a reaction agaisnt another bill designed to pour most of the funds into schools where poverty is prevalent.
He says this is a waste of money because internal structure must change first.
House says under his bill, money would be taken out of inefficient administration and put into classrooms, where it belongs.
