Possibly a House bill coming on Foundation budget?

First I've seen of this:
Not all of Rogers’s goals are housing related. He hopes to revamp the Chapter 70 formula, which provides state aid for K-12 education. It has not been updated since it was introduced in 1993, and makes several outdated assumptions in regards to the cost of health care and special education. He served on the Foundation Budget Review Commission, which recommended a series of changes to the formula.
“We were charged to review those false assumptions present in the existing formula,” Rogers said. “I’m working with the house council now to file a bill to adapt the legislative recommendations.”
