Benefits of Local Government Aid (LGA) for all
Without Local Government Aid (LGA) many Minnesota towns would likely have ceased to exist. Without this shared support urban sprawl would likely have been epidemic. This is part of the analysis provide by StarTribune writer Lori Sturdavant in an article "If not for LGA, cities would spend (and have) less."
This reminds me of a quote that former US Senator Paul Wellstone made famous, "We all do better, when we all do better." It is in the best interest of all, even those who are affluent, to have a civil society in which provides for quality schools and public services for all its residents, whether rural, urban or suburban.
