Mass Budget on education: two updates

Mass Budget has looked at Senate Ways and Means, and has this on education:
in order to help schools better address substance abuse and mental health issues, the SWM budget creates a new $5.0 million grant program for hiring Substance Abuse Counselors.
...which is great.
The other note: the Senate increase in regional schools transportation is $16.8 million over the amount passed by the House, so it'll be interesting to see what happens with that.
Also, no foundation budget review commission in this one, so we'll have to hope on amendments.
