SENATOR NELSON STATEMENT ON SCHOOL LEVIES
Rochester- Senator Carla Nelson (R-Rochester) released the following statement in response to local school districts considering levies.
“The legislature provided increased funding for K-12 education and held MVC, county aid and LGA at the same level as last year. I am proud that our state budget put more dollars in the classroom and implemented critical reforms to improve our students’ education. As a legislator, I have worked hard to communicate those state funding facts to local government officials. However, I am a firm believer in local control and I think it is up to those locally elected leaders and constituents to determine the need for levies.”
