JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Some Missouri House members are seeking to increase funding for school busing and the state’s A+ scholarship program.

In amendments distributed Tuesday, three lawmakers called for about $35 million in increases for bus transportation at public schools. Gov. Jay Nixon had recommended about $98 million in busing funds for the 2011-2012 school year.

The proposed funding increases are contained in six amendments. The House Budget Committee could approve some — or none — of those amendments.

Rep. David Sater, a Cassville Republican, also has proposed a $5 million increase for the state’s A+ scholarship program for community college students.

Budget chairman Ryan Silvey, a Kansas City Republican, says he expects the panel will consider all the amendments Tuesday.
