Positive Results for Minnesota

Investing in Education

Our kids’ future is our state’s most valuable resource and it’s important that we continue to support our local schools. We worked to provide Minnesota schools with a 2% funding increase for the next two years. Currently, our schools are funded 24% below the levels they were in 2003. Local schools will receive an additional $352 per student with the increases we passed this year.

A Stronger Economy

Since the DFL passed a responsibly balanced budget in 2013-14, Minnesota’s economy continues to enjoy business expansion that resulted in more than 80,000 new jobs in the last year.

Care for Seniors

Building on investments from 2013-2014, we put $138 million in nursing home funding to improve care for seniors and better compensate caregivers for our loved ones.

Child Protection

Responded to deficiencies in our state’s child protection laws with a bipartisan reform that strengthens our state’s ability to combat child abuse.
