House approves school safety funding for Minnesota schools

A school safety funding package that would give Minnesota schools more money to improve building safety and hire counselors and resource officers won the approval of state lawmakers Thursday.

The school safety budget plans approved by the Republican-majority House largely mirrors a $21 million proposal offered by DFL Gov. Mark Dayton earlier this year. The House bill expands on the governor’s plan, providing $28.5 million to be shared by schools in every district in the state. GOP lawmakers in the House say they also plan to dedicate $25 million in a separate bonding bill to schools for building improvements.
