NCSL's election experts break down the midterm state legislative elections along voters' verdict on statewide ballot measures.
NCSL surveyed 21 state legislative fiscal offices on their FY 2013 state appropriations for various education programs in December 2012. Overall, state appropriations to early care and education increased slightly by $127 million (1.5 percent). Although several states continued to struggle to restore cuts from the previous years, others continued to make small but consistent increases in various early care and education budgets.
