State lawmakers are in Allentown to find ways to fund special education fairly.

The Special Education Funding Commission held the latest in a series of hearings Thursday.

This one was at the Allentown School District administration building.

Local state Senator Pat Browne co-chairs the panel.

It's supposed to develop a new formula to distribute special education funding.

The commission is expected to roll out its recommendations this fall.
