Dayton to veto GOP school payback bill
Gov. Mark Dayton still has some time to make up his mind about Republicans' proposal to start repaying schools using the state's reserve funds but on Wednesday left little doubt about his intent. "I've indicated all along that it's financially irresponsible," Dayton said. He said he supported pay back of the schools by closing what Democrats call a loophole that allows companies with foreign operations to avoid paying some taxes. Republicans have rejected that proposal.
