Area Citizens Talk To Lawmakers About More Money For Public Education

Roughly 60 Brainerd and Crosby Ironton citizens traveled to the state capital yesterday to talk to lawmakers about school funding. Speakers to the group tended to agree the the school funding formula in Minnesota is not only complicated but not doing what it was designed to do. Brainerd lawmaker John Ward said something he wants to do is remove a operating levy property tax exemption for those who own cabins but don’t live in them year-around. Ward said the bill he supports will repeal the exemption and put them back on the rolls. He said the bill is alive in both legislative houses. Lawmakers Larry Howes, Al Doty and Paul Koering all told the group from Brainerd and Crosby Ironton they would support the bill.
