Posted by SD48 DFL Communications Team in Issues, Jenifer Loon, Kirk Stensrud, News, SD48 GOP
Taking a look back to the Republican-controlled House session in 2011 and Jenifer Loon’s and Kirk Stensrud’s votes, we find they voted for deep cuts for the University of Minnesota and Minnesota’s State Colleges and Universities.
Why is that an issue? It would cause hundreds of faculty layoffs, tuition increases and fewer courses available for students. That would translate into Minnesota having a harder time providing skilled employees for our state’s employers.
Think we’re exaggerating in the need for training? Check this out:
