Suburban Coalition meeting on education funding


Representatives Alice Peisch and John Rogers discuss education funding and the results of the recent Committee recommendations. The MMA’s John Robertson also participated.

Major problems seem to be the large increases in health insurance costs, the SPED costs, and the costs of high need students.
Rep. Peisch noted the need for more revenue and that voters have twice recently overturned votes of the legislature to increase taxes, an alcohol tax increase and indexing the gas tax increase.
