Is taking money from the state’s reserves to pay back schools when Minnesota is facing a predicted deficit next biennium a wise move? Representative Pat Garofalo (R-Farmington) says you should pay debt when you have the cash. Representative Ryan Winkler (DFL-Golden Valley) says the K-12 “shift” repayment will weaken the state and still leave it owing schools two billion dollars. The bill passed both the House and the Senate today.
