Last week: the DFL in the Legislature, with the aid of their PR arm in the Twin Cities media, exclaimed with great ballyhoo that they were going to “repay the school funding shift”.
As we noted at the time, the DFL promised – ballyhoo notwithstanding – to repay half the shift. And they did it after Mark Dayton unaccountably vetoed the GOP’s plan last session to pay back the entire shift.
But beyond that, there’s one other clinker.
Take a look at the bill – HF1 – that relates to the “repayment” of the shift.
What’s missing from the bill?
Answer below the jump.
Any reference to where the money is going to come from.
Meaning, presumably, the DFL is counting on unicorns to fly down from the sky bearing little treasure chests. Perhaps full of platinum “get out of debt free” coins.
