Education News: March 31-April 6, 2012

 

Despite rumors of an early adjournment, the legislature will be returning on Monday, April 16.  This week the legislature continued their work in conference committee and on the floor, finalizing bills and sending conference committee reports to the Governor.  Governor Dayton vetoed HF 2083, a bill that would have accelerated the repayment of the school aid payment shift by taking $430 million from the state budget reserve.  Another bill of note, HF 2949/SF 2482, the omnibus education bill, passed off the Senate floor and will be headed to conference committee when the legislature reconvenes.  AMSD has put together comparison of the House and Senate versions of HF 2949; you can access the document here:
