Sunday, May 19, 2019

St. Paul, Minnesota — Tonight, the House, Senate, and Governor reached a bipartisan agreement on budget targets.

House Speaker Melissa Hortman released the following statement:

“Minnesota House DFLers are committed to building a Minnesota that works better for everyone. We reached a bipartisan budget agreement with Governor Walz and Senate Republicans that provides strong funding for education and secures health care for more than one million Minnesotans. While the budget agreement does not contain everything we would have liked, we worked together and achieved a compromise that is in the best interests of Minnesotans.”
