Among the concerns for the eighth annual KHTS Sacramento Road Trip are education, transportation, nonprofit services and how the budget plays in to these topics.

The first item on the agenda is an meeting on education with Assemblywoman Kristin Olsen, R-Modesto. 

One of this biggest areas of concern is education funding, especially how the state formula affects Santa Clarita Valley school districts.

Local schools have long received the short end of the funding stick, according to Joan Lucid, Saugus Union School District superintendent.

“We are the lowest funded district in Los Angeles County, and one of the lowest funded areas in the state,” Lucid said. “We need a new funding formula.”

One of Olsen’s legislative goals has been to curb the cost of higher education for college students statewide, with Assembly Bill 138.

Since 2008, CSU tuition has risen more than 60 percent. AB 138 would create a cap for CSU tuition.
