Minister promises to fix 'urgent' needs at Echuca Specialist School
$14 million had been allocated to allow the school to move, which had been pulled by the government.
Last week's Victorian budget again snubbed the school and Mr Merlino offered no firm plans for when the money would be available.
When asked to address the Echuca community, he used his time to attack the opposition for its lack of action on the issue.
He also offered a long list of school projects funded in this year's budget and pointed out the lack of spending from the previous government.
