Leader Hortman Statement on Governor Dayton’s Opportunity Agenda

SAINT PAUL – Today, Governor Dayton outlined his budget to build a better Minnesota for all.

House DFL Leader Melissa Hortman released the following statement:

“Minnesota is outperforming states around us, but families still face too many barriers to success. Minnesota Democrats are committed to improving the economic lives of Minnesotans in every corner of our state, and Governor Dayton’s budget provides the framework to deliver results.

“In order to make progress for Minnesotans, Republicans and Democrats must work together to compromise and find common ground. I know Governor Dayton is committed to doing so, and Minnesota Democrats are ready to join him. We look forward to working toward a better future for all Minnesotans that reflects our values of hard work, education and more opportunity for everyone.”
