Senate Education Committee Chairman Stephen Saland criticizes the Spitzer administration for cutting $500,000 in funding for investigators who handle teacher sex cases involving students. The Poughkeepsie Republican declares that he will fight to restore the funding. State Education Commissioner Richard Mills says he agrees with Saland that the funding must be restored to attack an accumulation of hundreds of allegations. He says the cut proposed in Governor Eliot Spitzer's budget may be a misunderstanding. Saland says that if that's true, the bureaucrat responsible should be fired. There was no immediate comment from the Spitzer administration.
