Commerce ISD superintendent Blake Cooper says a promising school finance reform bill failed to win support in the State Senate and has been withdrawn, so the issue will likely be left up to the state Supreme Court when it hears the lawsuit against the state's school-finance system this fall, and then to a special session of the state legislature next summer.  Blake says it also appears the Commerce ISD and other districts will be receiving less of an increase in state funding than they expected a few weeks ago.
