BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF MINNESOTA:

Section 1. new text beginPURPOSE.
new text end

new text begin The state of Minnesota recognizes that certain inequities exist in the state funding of
kindergarten through grade 12 education and that, as state revenues have remained flat
in the previous years, subject to certain adjustments, some districts, for various reasons,
have fallen behind in funding and now lag well below the average amount received by
school districts throughout the state on a per-pupil basis. To recognize this disparity and to
attempt to grant some relief to the districts receiving below average funding on a per-pupil
unit basis, Minnesota Statutes, section 126C.10, is amended.
