Berg: "I haven't weighed in on initiated measures because I think it clouds the decision making for those voting on them."
Heitkamp: "I completely understand the frustrations that many North Dakotans have about our property tax system. With that said, I oppose Measure 2 because it centralizes control over education and local government services in Bismarck rather than where our citizens live."
The equitable & adequate funding of K-12 education statewide is a valuable investment in our youth & our future. Since 2006, many have worked hard to bring about the greatest reform of K-12 funding in our history. This legislation builds on that success and ensures that all students have access to the resources and opportunities they need to achieve their full potential.
Legislation will minimize tuition increases and address funding inequities, enhance healthcare education programs and support non-beneficiary students attending ND tribal colleges. Senate Bill 2013 includes increased funding for scholarships for ND students.
