The current chair and past chair of AMSD wrote this opinion piece for the Star Tribune on Friday, May 3, 2019.

The Governor, House and Senate leaders are meeting to establish conference committee targets—the amount of new spending allocated to each of the House/Senate budget conference committees. The target established for the E-12 Education Conference Committee will determine education funding for the next two years.

The current and past AMSD chairs made a case for what these targets should be in the Star Tribune:


It is critical that you contact House and Senate leaders, and your local legislators, TODAY to urge an E-12 conference committee target of AT LEAST the level proposed by the Governor to allow a funding formula increase of 3 percent and 2 percent, plus special education funding. Funding education is the constitutional duty of our Legislature.
