Dayton takes questions from college students in Winona


WINONA, Minn. (KTTC) -- Gov. Mark Dayton faced questions from college students in Winona on Wednesday.

Dayton hosted a forum about Minnesota's future at Kryzsko Commons student union at Winona State University that also attracted students from St. Marys University.

Many of the questions focused on college affordability and jobs. Students asked how Dayton and the state can increase paid internships.

"Well, about the paid internships because that's something where I think we've all fallen down in terms of that, budget cutbacks," Dayton said. "It's one of the things that's certainly a priority but we haven't given it the attention it deserves."

Dayton also spoke about on-campus work study. He said as federal funding for the program falls, the state just doesn't have the money to make up the difference.
