Representative Dario Anselmo Comments on House Budget Targets

ST. PAUL –House Republicans announced their budget targets Monday, headlined by $1.35 billion in tax relief for Minnesota families, $450 million in new funding for road and bridge infrastructure, and an overall budget target that ensures a sustainable level of state spending for the next biennium. House Republicans are also proposing $1.1 billion in new funding for K-12 schools compared to the 2016-2017 biennium.

“This budget focuses on the top priorities for many Edina residents including putting more money into our schools, working to lower health care costs and investing in transportation infrastructure improvements,” said Rep Dario Anselmo, R-Edina. “Additionally, this budget provides $1.35 billion in tax relief to the hardworking taxpayers of our state.”

The overall House Republican budget target limits government spending more than the two proposals put forward by the Governor and the Senate. The budget resolution, containing the targets, will be adopted this week by the House Ways and Means Committee and will serve as the framework for Finance Committees as they construct their budgets.
