On Monday, we had two more meeting on Childcare Affordability. The committee met in East Grand Forks and Crookston. We heard from county & city officials, providers, and parents. Rep Dan Fabian and Rep Deb Kiel joined us. A good part of the conversation dealt how good children care helps attract and keep young families in our rural communities.

Monday morning we held a Property Tax Relief meeting with Chair Steve Drazkowski in Breckenridge. We talked about the elimination of the statewide business property tax for small business owners, cut school district construction levy burdens on farmers in half, and provided over $2 billion in tax relief to hardworking Minnesotans. That bill still awaits full legislative action during the upcoming 2016 session.
