Legislative Update

Legislative Update from Rep. Anna Wills

Dear Friends,

Last Friday, the Minnesota Supreme Court issued an order regarding the lawsuit filed by the Legislature challenging the constitutionality of the Governor’s line-item veto of the operational funding of the Legislature. Many initial reports by the Twins Cities media were incorrect, so I want to offer some clarification. The Court did not render a decision on the case, nor did it overturn the lower court's ruling that stated the Governor’s veto of the Legislature’s funding is unconstitutional. Instead, the Court has ordered that the Legislature go into mediation with the Governor to solve the dispute. I am confident that the people’s voice at the Capitol will be fully restored.

You can read the court order here.

These scholarships honor five ISD 196 alumni who gave their lives fighting overseas: Nathanael Doring (AVHS/1993), Daniel Olsen (EHS/2005), Benjamin Kopp (RHS/2006), Christopher Goeke (AVHS/2004), and Andrew Wilfahrt (RHS/1997).
