Local school districts will see some of their state aid restored under the $132 billion state budget approved by lawmakers early Thursday morning, but they'll still be getting less than last year.

The Saranac Lake Central School District will get $7,303,541 from the state, which is $164,000 more than what Gov.

Still, that amount of aid is about $466,000 less than the district received last year.
