Minnesota school districts have $2B in reserve. So why is Dayton seeking emergency funding?

As Gov. Mark Dayton toured the state this week making the case for $138 million in emergency spending for schools, Republicans accused the Democratic leader of exaggerating the fiscal urgency schools face to make a political point.

State Rep. Jenifer Loon, R-Eden Prairie, notes that the $18.8 billion, two-year education budget approved last May included significant new spending. And Dayton’s plan gives the additional money to every district when not all of them are facing shortfalls.
