Governor Mark Dayton is proposing to add $80 million to local government aid in his new budget. LGA is money provided by the state to cities and counties. Not all local governments, however, stand to benefit equally.
According to MPR News' Ground Level,
Most of the increase would go outstate in 2014, the first year under the governor's proposal. But after that, a new formula would kick in and the distribution of dollars would shift, sending most of the new $80 million in later years to the Twin Cities area.
Jim Miller, executive director of the League of Minnesota Cities, joins The Daily Circuit Wednesday, Jan. 30 to discuss changes to LGA.
