The House voted to divert money from a multibillion-dollar state trust fund toward early childhood education. 

The proposed constitutional amendment would increase annual distributions from the state’s $17 billion land grant permanent fund. 

The amendment would provide about $145 million a year in additional public spending on early educational services for infants and preschool-aged children. 

Final approval requires a majority vote on all legislators and a statewide public vote.
