Tom Luna won’t get increased funding out of the Idaho Land Board for public education for 2014-2015.
The Republican dominated board voted Tuesday to keep its funding for public education at $31.3 million, Idaho Education News reports.
Luna originally wanted $36.9 million to help pay for increasing enrollment and inflation, but pared his request down to $34 million.
Board members supported putting additional revenue into endowment reserves.
Land board members include: Gov. Butch Otter, Attorney General Lawrence Wasden, Secretary of State Ben Ysursa and Controller Brandon Woolf and Luna.
