CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A public school finance bill has failed to get enough votes to win introduction in the state House of Representatives.

House Bill 47 failed introduction Monday on a 30-30 vote.

The bill proposes to change how the state allocates money to school districts.

Republican Rep. Keith Gingery, of Jackson, said the Teton Count School District would have lost $3.8 million if the bill passed. Campbell County could lose $1 million.

He says the bill would not have saved the state any money but would spread out the same amount of money to other school districts.

The bill also proposes lowering average class sizes for kindergarten through third grade and reducing the amount allocated per student for technology.
