May 18, 2017

 

The Honorable Kurt Daudt

Speaker of the House of Representatives

The State of Minnesota

 

Dear Speaker Daudt:

 

I have vetoed and returned to you H. F. No. 140, Chapter No. 73, the Educator Licensing bill.

 

The problems identified by the Office of the Legislative Auditor about the confusion and inconsistency in Minnesota's teacher licensing laws highlighted the need for significant reform.  I appreciate many of the compromises the Conferees negotiated with Commissioner Cassellius to improve House File 140 from its original iteration.  However, I strongly believe any proposal with a fiscal impact must also include the requisite funding.  The new Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board (PELSB) created in the bill and the tiered licensure reforms come with estimated costs of $3.4 million, in addition to roughly $1.6 million in expenses moved from the Minnesota Department of Education in order to implement them.  Although the E-12 Finance Chairs have committed to providing funding in the E-12 omnibus bill, it is not yet guaranteed. 

 

I am also disappointed the Conferees refused to include several of the items, for which Commissioner Cassellius and other stakeholders advocated, both in public testimony and in negotiations, to ensure highly qualified professional teachers for Minnesota students.  First and foremost, it is troubling that several routes exist into the third tier to obtain unlimited professional licensure without requiring or proving adequate training.  Without a requirement that teaching candidates demonstrate comprehensive training in subject matter content and pedagogy, we risk providing our students with educators who are inadequately prepared.  We must always balance the very real urgency of addressing our significant teacher shortages with a commitment to maintaining the high professional standards for which Minnesota is known.  As policymakers, it is our obligation and responsibility to ensure that long-term professionally credentialed teachers have received the highest quality preparation.

 

Additionally, it is disappointing that with an increasingly diverse student body, cultural competency training is not required upon renewal for Tier 1 and Tier 2 licenses.  Regardless of the vital need to fill shortages, all teachers should be expected to teach students of all backgrounds in a compassionate, culturally responsive and understanding manner.


Journal of the House - 59th Day - Friday, May 19, 2017 - Top of Page 6413

Other matters of concern within the Tier 1 area include language allowing renewals that essentially provides no limitation, and the prohibition on Tier 1 licensees from joining the collective bargaining unit.  I see no reason why a particular license should prohibit a teacher from the pay and benefits accorded their colleagues.

 

We all share the goal of ensuring that every child in every classroom is taught by a high quality professional teacher, and that our efforts to attract and retain those professionals are aided by a clear and easy-to-navigate licensing system.  I encourage your Conferees to continue to work with Commissioner Cassellius to address the concerns I have outlined, so I can sign a bill that meets our shared goals.

 

 

                                                                                                                                Sincerely,

 

                                                                                                                                Mark Dayton

Subd. 8.  Payments for unit-based services with programming.  Payments for unit-based services with programming, including behavior programming, housing access coordination, in-home family support, independent living skills training, individualized home supports, hourly supported living services, and supported employment provided to an individual outside of any day or residential service plan must be calculated as follows, unless the services are authorized separately under subdivision 6 or 7:

 

(1) determine the number of units of service to meet a recipient's needs;

 

(2) personnel hourly wage rate must be based on the 2009 Bureau of Labor Statistics Minnesota-specific rates or rates derived by the commissioner as provided in subdivision 5;

 

(3) for a recipient requiring customization for deaf and hard-of-hearing language accessibility under subdivision 12, add the customization rate provided in subdivision 12 to the result of clause (2).  This is defined as the customized direct-care rate;

 

(4) multiply the number of direct staff hours by the appropriate staff wage in subdivision 5, paragraph (a), or the customized direct-care rate;

 

(5) multiply the number of direct staff hours by the product of the supervision span of control ratio in subdivision 5, paragraph (e), clause (1), and the appropriate supervision wage in subdivision 5, paragraph (a), clause (16);

 

(6) combine the results of clauses (4) and (5), and multiply the result by one plus the employee vacation, sick, and training allowance ratio in subdivision 5, paragraph (e), clause (2).  This is defined as the direct staffing rate;

 

(7) for program plan support, multiply the result of clause (6) by one plus the program plan supports ratio in subdivision 5, paragraph (e), clause (4);

 

(8) for employee-related expenses, multiply the result of clause (7) by one plus the employee-related cost ratio in subdivision 5, paragraph (e), clause (3);

 

(9) for client programming and supports, multiply the result of clause (8) by one plus the client programming and supports ratio in subdivision 5, paragraph (e), clause (5);

 

(10) this is the subtotal rate;

 

(11) sum the standard general and administrative rate, the program-related expense ratio, and the absence and utilization factor ratio;

 

(12) divide the result of clause (10) by one minus the result of clause (11).  This is the total payment amount;

 

(13) for supported employment provided in a shared manner, divide the total payment amount in clause (12) by the number of service recipients, not to exceed three.  For independent living skills training and individualized home supports provided in a shared manner, divide the total payment amount in clause (12) by the number of service recipients, not to exceed two; and

Sec. 24.  Minnesota Statutes 2016, section 256B.4914, subdivision 16, is amended to read:

 

Subd. 16.  Budget neutrality adjustments.  (a) The commissioner shall use the following adjustments to the rate generated by the framework to assure budget neutrality until the rate information is available to implement paragraph (b).  The rate generated by the framework shall be multiplied by the appropriate factor, as designated below:

 

(1) for residential services:  1.003;

 

(2) for day services:  1.000;

 

(3) for unit-based services with programming:  0.941; and

 

(4) for unit-based services without programming:  0.796.

 

(b) Within 12 months of January 1, 2014, the commissioner shall compare estimated spending for all home and community-based waiver services under the new payment rates defined in subdivisions 6 to 9 with estimated spending for the same recipients and services under the rates in effect on July 1, 2013.  This comparison must distinguish spending under each of subdivisions 6, 7, 8, and 9.  The comparison must be based on actual recipients and services for one or more service months after the new rates have gone into effect.  The commissioner shall consult with the commissioner of management and budget on this analysis to ensure budget neutrality.  If estimated spending under the new rates for services under one or more subdivisions differs in this comparison by 0.3 percent or more, the commissioner shall assure aggregate budget neutrality across all service areas by adjusting the budget neutrality factor in paragraph (a) in each subdivision so that total estimated spending for each subdivision under the new rates matches estimated spending under the rates in effect on July 1, 2013.

 

(c) A service rate developed using values in subdivision 5, paragraph (a), clause (11), is not subject to budget neutrality adjustments.
