Email

Education funding, the largest single part of the Minnesota budget, would rise $550 million in the next two years under a House Democratic plan being debated this afternoon and tonight.

Early-childhood education, including funding all-day kindergarten statewide, is the foundation of the $15.7 billion, two-year plan.

"We are going to get every single child to the starting line on time," said Rep. Paul Marquart, DFL-Dilworth, House education finance chairman.
