One spot John Kline and I agree on issues such as education. In education, we both agree on removing some of the most burden some requirments sent from D.C, also to keep finantial commitments to the schools, and we also agree on, that congress should provide the funding promised under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act.

3 Minnesotta Issues on Education-

1. BillSF276- To create a statewide insurance pool for statewide employees. I agree with this issue because, it is giving insurance to teachers, which should recieve insurance.


2. Education Omnibus Bill- This bill states that it will end intagration programs that have not met expectations. I agree with this bill because if there is a program that isn't making any progress, or not being were they are suposed to be, I think the leaders should end them.

3.The Achievement Gap- This bill says that it will improve Minnesotta's educational outcomes. I agree with this bill because, I think that it is important that all students educational outcomes should be high, and that it would be helpful to some students that have a hard time in school.

The Bill I will be sponsering-

Careless Driving, H.F.68- This bill is stating that if a fatal car accident occurs from carless driving, the carless driver will have a punishment of somekind. The punishment of the carless driver will be either a 3,000 dollar fine, or one year inprisonment. Citizens should support this bill for the above rreason, and it could help save lives.
