ODESSA - E.C.I.S.D. Employees could soon see some help with the pain at the pump.

During a budget workshop, the school board brought up the idea of giving some district employees a gas stipend.

These stipends would go to employees on the lower end of the pay scale, like bus drivers, cafeteria workers, and teaching assistants.

Right now, it's just a proposal, school district officials got the idea from a Houston School District.

There will be a public hearing about the proposal.

The school board hopes to have the budget approved by the beginning of August,
