S.F. No. 78 - Education Telecommunications Access Equity and Appropriations
Author: Senator Charles W. Wiger
Prepared By: Jay M. Willms, Senate Fiscal Analyst (651/296-2090)
Date: January 16, 2015


This bill would increase the appropriation for the telecommunications/Internet access equity aid program under Minnesota Statutes, section 125B.26. Since the current appropriation is insufficient to cover eligible expenditures submitted by school districts, this would eliminate the program’s proration rate.
