“I am eager to start the robust discussions of the proposals the Governor outlined and to building a balanced budget that will make Minnesota a better place to live, work, and raise a family,” Kent said.
“Our highly educated workforce is the backbone of Minnesota’s economy, and Gov. Dayton’s unwavering commitment to our schools is particularly exciting to me and my community. The additional funding to the education formula and expanding of pre-kindergarten options will be critical to helping all of our students get the best possible education,” Kent said.
“Gov. Dayton’s ambitious and important plan to expand MinnesotaCare will mean access to affordable, comprehensive health insurance for more Minnesotans. I am committed to working to make this plan a reality,” Kent said.
