(St. Paul, Mn) -- The Coalition of Greater Minnesota Cities has its annual lobbying day at the state capitol today.
Luverne City Administrator John Call says local government aid remains a very high priority for non-metro communities.
Call says the state aid continues to keep the tax rate lower than it would otherwise be.
He says it's kind of a "spread the wealth" program, because 70 percent of the tax base is in the Twin Cities.
The Coalition of Greater Minnesota Cities represents 85 communities across the state.
