TOPEKA — House Speaker Mike O’Neal said this afternoon that the House will offer the Senate most of the increased education funding it wants if the Senate will approve an alternative to the massive tax-cutting bill awaiting Gov. Sam Brownback’s signature.

O’Neal said the milder tax cut plan, which the Senate sent back to a committee today, would provide more flexibility for school funding.
