A bill that will help communities take more control of spending decisions will be considered by state officials tomorrow.  The Act is about the amount a School District may reduce its minimum budget when it experiences a decline in student enrollment.  Danbury state Senator Mike McLachlan says this bill basically prevents the state from forcing communities to spend the same amount of money to educate fewer students.  He says paying the same amount of money for a shrinking student population is a senseless mandate.  The Office of Legislative Research and Office of Fiscal Analysis will meet tomorrow about the measure.
