PRESS RELEASE

WILLS ISSUES STATEMENT ON FEBRUARY FORECAST BUDGET IMPROVEMENTS


ST. PAUL, MN—Rep. Anna Wills, R-Apple Valley, issued the following statement following the release of the February forecast budget update:

"I am encouraged by the continued positive developments for Minnesota's economy. Over the last two years Minnesota's economy has grown, generating billions of dollars in additional tax revenue, creating over 50,000 new jobs, and lowering the unemployment rate to 5.5%, all without raising taxes.

"Fiscal restraint has closed the projected FY2014-2015 deficit from $4.4 billion dollars just two years ago to $627 million dollars today. I look forward to continued discussions and debate in the coming weeks about how best to address the budget gap, and foster continued economic improvement and job growth for Minnesota."
