DENVER (AP)- Before they wrap up for the year, lawmakers still have to pass one of the most crucial pieces of legislation they decide annually: how to fund public schools.

This year, with extra tax revenue on hand, lawmakers are not only passing the yearly School Finance Act, they're also voting on a piecemeal attempt to implement reforms that failed as a result of voters rejected a $1 billion tax increase last year.

That includes a measure to require more transparency in how districts spend their money, more funds for English-language learners, and dollars for charter schools.
