We Must Remain Vigilant on Levy Equalization

Sure, it's just a throwaway comment in a larger article about school funding on Crosscut, but anytime that I read something like this:
One big potential cut could be $605 million by eliminating the state's education levy equalization program, an idea has never gained traction in the Legislatures. The program helps districts with lower property tax revenues; those districts are often in struggling communities.
 .....I get nervous, especially with the profile that the local levy swap idea gained towards the end of the Gubernatorial election.
