On Friday morning the Minnesota Senate announced it was naming Sen. LeRoy Stumpf
(DFL-Plummer) to the E-12 Finance Conference Committee. A conference committee
is called when the Senate and House have passed different bills, and a smaller
group of legislators meet to put together a bill both sides can agree upon.
Stumpfís experience as a former chair of the E-12 committee for close to a
decade will serve the Conference Committee well.
ďItís always an honor to be named to a conference committee, and Iíd like to
thank the Senate leadership for this designation. Iíve worked on educational
issues for nearly two decades, and while the specific issues change, weíre
always working to give Minnesota kids the best opportunities available, and
thatís what Iíll be striving for as I sit on this committee,Ē said Stumpf.
Other senators named to the conference committee include Sen. Chuck Wiger (DFL-Maplewood),
Sen. Alice Johnson (DFL-Blaine), Sen. Kevin Dahle (DFL-Northfield) and Sen. Eric
Pratt (R-Prior Lake).
