Katie Sieben Viewpoint: Education funding, tax fairness are highlights of governor's budget plan
The budget debate kicked off at the Capitol last month with the release of Gov. Mark Dayton's budget proposal. While much has already been written about the governor's plan, I wanted to take this opportunity to provide my take on the 2013 legislative session and our ongoing budget discussions.
On the spending side of the budget equation, I am most eager to join the governor in making funding for statewide early childhood education and all-day kindergarten a top priority.
