5. Do you support or oppose increasing the school construction floor in the capital budget from $250 million to $500 million?
This is a funding question, and I have insufficient information regarding the demands on the capital budget to respond. However, funds to construct schools should be one of the higher priorities, in part because it is often difficult to predict the future need for schools. Another consideration may become paramount if the dramatic weather we've been having continues. Older schools might find their heating systems not up to the frigid temperatures created by the polar vortex freeze we experienced earlier this year.
