The Governor's Education Reform Commission proposals, which were adopted in December 2015 with the intention of becoming a package of legislation in 2016, is still scheduled to be taken up during the 2017 session. Governor Deal has continued to reiterate his intention to make funding reform a top priority during the 2017 session.  Comprehensive funding reform was the largest and most controversial component of the overall reform package, and it drew a great deal of attention around teacher merit pay discussions.
