Click to hear why GOP leaders think Governor Dayton will back a teacher layoff bill.

Minnesota Republican legislative leaders say Governor Mark Dayton is “on the edge” of backing a bill that removes teacher seniority as barrier to laying them off.

Senate Majority Leader David Senjem who met Governor Dayton for breakfast today says the Governor has some concerns about the bill, particularly the timing of it.

House Speaker Kurt Zellers says the Governor is researching what other states are doing on the issue. If there’s another plan out there the Governor could support, that could change the teacher layoff bill which is scheduled to go to a House-Senate conference committee.
