DFL-controlled Senate passes scaled-back education bill
The Minnesota Senate approved a K-12 education bill Wednesday without an income tax hike that would have attracted Gov. Pawlenty's veto.
The bill raises school funding by $800 million, with much of the new money devoted to defraying the cost of special education. Will the new proposal satisfy governor and DFL voters?
- Mindy Greiling: Chair of the House K-12 Finance Divison, DFL-Roseville.
- Tarryl Clark: Assistant majority leader of the Minnesota Senate, DFL-St. Cloud.
