MinneMinds Coalition Statement on Governor Dayton’s Veto of Education Bill
SAINT PAUL, Minn. – May 19, 2015 – Today, Frank Forsberg, chair of the MinneMinds Coalition, made the following statement regarding Governor Dayton’s veto of the education bill passed by the Minnesota legislature:
“Governor Dayton has been an ardent supporter of early learning and with his leadership early childhood education has become one of the premier issues for the state. Under his tenure, Minnesota has seen an unprecedented increase in funding for Minnesota’s youngest learners and become a national leader in policy innovation. The Governor’s veto of the education bill passed by the legislature is a clear example of his genuine devotion to doing what he thinks is right for Minnesota’s children.
