Welcome back to the 2019 legislative session!
Minnesota School Boards Association’s Government Relations team will publish House and Senate education policy and finance bill introductions here each week.
We encourage you to glance at the bills for topics that are relevant to your school boards and districts. For instance, a finance bill adding 3% to the formula with inflation might be of interest to you and your board. We anticipate bills on the special education formula and mandate reduction. We also are working on bills to help with school board special elections. When you see bills introduced, it is an opportune time to reach out to your legislators and ask for their support or opposition on the issue. Grass roots efforts are key to good legislation.
If you have any questions or concerns about the bill introductions please contact Kim Lewis at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
