ATLANTA (WRDW/WAGT) - Funding for Georgia’s public schools is almost back to pre-pandemic levels.

Lawmakers released new details about the state budget.

About 96 percent of education funding has been restored after a year of budget cuts because of the pandemic.

Another key item in the budget is rural broadband access.

About $30 million is going toward expanding it statewide.
