Ward Wants Seasonal Home Owners to Pay Their Share

State Representative John Ward of Brainerd says seasonal property owners must be brought back into the school funding loop. He tells KLKS, 55% of the net property worth in the Pequot Lakes school district is made up of seasonal homes, 35% for Crosby and 20% for Brainerd. He says the result is a one billion dollar shortfall in basic education funding statewide. Ward has bill in the legislature now that would repeal the seasonal exemption. He says that may not be all that's needed, but it would be a start.

What happened to "no taxation without representation"?
Seasonal home owners do NOT use the school system and should not be unfairly required to support it.
