Description

The largest budget increase for Minnesota schools in the past fifteen years easily won the stamp of approval from state lawmakers this summer, as students prepare to head back into the classrooms.  Former Lakeville school board member and current Senate Education Committee member Zach Duckworth explains what administrators, teachers, parents and students should expect this fall.

One of the key budget bills enacted every two years finances executive and administrative agencies, funds support services for veterans and ensures election integrity and transparency.   It is a wide-ranging bill that impacts all Minnesotans, and State Government and Elections Committee Chair Mary Kiffmeyer joins Capitol Report moderator Shannon Loehrke to review the latest efforts to tighten Minnesota's election process, assist veterans and improve state services.

Also in the program this week, Governor Tim Walz issues an executive order banning conversion therapy, plus a look at the Grand Floor of the Minnesota State Capitol.
