Rep Layman lists broadband funding as a loss felt with Supplemental Budget veto

In an Editorial in the Grand Rapids Herald Review, Representative Layman specifically lists broadband funding as a loss felt by rural Minnesotans with the Governor’s veto of the Supplemental Budget…

On May 20, we wrapped up the legislative session by putting bills on the governor’s desk to cut taxes, provide schools with more funding, and expand broadband in rural Minnesota. Moreover, we took major steps to address and fix the enormous challenges faced by Minnesotans due to the Dayton administration’s MNLARS debacle and the revelation of years of elder abuse reports neglected by Minnesota’s Department of Health and Human Services.

Despite the compromise effort, the governor vetoed our tax and school funding bill as well as our supplemental budget, which will mean major consequences for many, many Minnesotans.
