Branstad has proposed no increase in basic state financing for local schools. He also wants to offer preschool scholarships only to families who can't afford to pay themselves. Those proposals have stalled in the Legislature as schools near a deadline for getting their budgets certified.

Meeting with reporters Monday, Branstad advised school officials to assume that the final budget approved by the Legislature will be close to his proposal.

With Republicans controlling the House and Democrats in charge
in the Senate, lawmakers will reach a compromise, and Branstad says history indicates such an agreement will come close to what the
governor proposes.
