The Libre Academy in Litchfield needs $60,000 to get through the school year, Dille told the Senate Finance Committee as it debated an education funding bill.

"They're basically short of money," Dille, R-Dassel, said in asking for $25,000 for Libre Academy. Meeker County will provide matching funds, he said.

Dille later withdrew the amendment and said he will work with Senate Democrats to improve the request before the education bill reaches a floor vote.
