Wondering about the outcome of education bills during the 2012 Legislative Session? AMSD has compiled a review of the education bills from the 2012 session.

The 2012 Minnesota legislative session adjourned sine die on Thursday, May 10, 2012.  While the Legislature worked until the final moments on the bonding bill, Vikings stadium and tax bill, the education omnibus bill was signed into law on April 27, 2012. Early completion of the education bill was unusual as traditionally it has been one of the last bills to be completed.

The even year session is generally focused on policy initiatives and this year was no exception as AMSD’s calls for modest, targeted investments in education went unheeded.  However, some key AMSD priorities were adopted during the session as the Governor and Legislature agreed on an omnibus education policy bill in addition to several other education policy initiatives.
