Area lawmakers area unamimous; there probably won't be any new money for public education from this session of the legislature. Royalton State Representative Al Doty said everything depends on the February economic forecast and it doesn't look good. Brainerd Lawmaker John Ward told the Brainerd Dispatch the Governor, Senate and House will have to work together to find creative solutions to the education funding problem. Walker Lawmaker Larry Howes said he doesn't see how to generate more money if there is no more money. Fort Ripley State Senator Paul Koering said the school funding system is broken, needs to be torn down and rebuilt from brick one. Koering said if he were a school district official, he wouldn't hold his breath.
