Leader Hortman Statement on Republican E-12 Education Bill

Friday, March 31, 2017

SAINT PAUL – Today, the Minnesota House will vote on the Republican E-12 Education bill.

House DFL Leader Melissa Hortman released the following statement:

“Minnesotans value education.  If Minnesota Democrats were in the majority in the Minnesota House, education would be our top priority. We’re working to increase funding for our schools to ensure children across the state have access to a quality public education and the opportunity to succeed. This Republican bill underfunds our schools and fails to provide what Minnesota’s children need.
