Gimse wants more money for school bus programs

Email

ST. PAUL - Sen. Joe Gimse announced a plan to take $95 million from Twin Cities transit funds, and another $5 million from rural funds, to increase spending on school bus programs statewide.

It is a plan that Democrats in control of the Minnesota Legislature say they will not consider.

"It would ensure students get to school and back safely," Gimse, a Willmar Republican, said Monday about his plan.
