Albany, NY, Mar 28, 2012 — Assemblywoman Addie Russell of Theresa says there's some good news in the new state budget for North Country Schools. Governor Andrew Cuomo had proposed putting $250 million of education funding into a competitive grant program. Poor and rural schools said that would devastate their budgets. In Thursday's final agreement, Russell says $200 million of the competitive grant money was transferred back to the general education fund.
