The rest of the funds will provide preschool for four- and five-year-olds, expand access to tutoring, strengthen Adult Basic Education programs, and support academic enrichment and college readiness initiatives. This package of investments will help students, families, educators, and communities bounce back and prepare for a bright future.
MLC Fiscal Affairs Committee
This summer, I’m honored to share that I have been selected to co-chair the Fiscal Affairs Committee at the Midwestern Legislative Conference. This is a nonpartisan, binational committee of Midwestern legislators, who will explore a wide range of issues related to state fiscal conditions and the development and management of state budgets. My fellow committee members and I will participate in a forum for the exchange of information, ideas and strategies related to current revenue trends, spending needs and the critical fiscal and budgetary challenges facing states and provinces across the Midwest.
As the Midwest bounces back from the COVID-19 pandemic, I look forward to working with colleagues throughout the region to find ways to ensure our fiscal decisions are ones that can ensure an equitable recovery. This is an exciting opportunity, and I look forward to the work of leading a charge of promoting racial justice through our legislative budgeting processes.
If you have any questions about my work for this conference, the impacts of the Summer Learning Plan, or the road ahead for crafting Minnesota’s budget, please feel free to reach out at 651-296-4262 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you.
