Statement from House DFL Leader Paul Thissen on Governor’s Supplemental Budget

Tuesday, March 15, 2016

SAINT PAUL, MINN – House DFL Leader Paul Thissen released the following statement in response to Governor Dayton’s supplemental budget proposal:

“From ensuring that greater Minnesota families have access to high speed internet to creating more opportunity for Minnesotans of color, the Governor is working to build an economy that works better for all Minnesotans.

The Governor has wisely protected Minnesota’s financial future in his budget, while making strategic investments like protecting Minnesotans personal data from cyber attacks. We must not repeat mistakes from the past and plunge our state into deficits with giveaways to special interests and the wealthy few.

We are eager to work with the Governor to make this a productive session where we create more opportunities for the families in Minnesota that are still feeling squeezed by an economy that isn’t working for everyone.”
