St. Paul, Minnesota — Minnesota Management and Budget reported today that state general fund revenue was $489 million above for the forecast amount for April 2019.
House Majority Leader Ryan Winkler released the following statement:
“Minnesota’s economy continues to grow, and tax revenues are up. That’s good news. As we prepare Minnesota’s budget for the next two years, we will continue to prioritize schools, roads, and health care for all Minnesotans. This increased revenue helps, but does not address the needs of Minnesotans. Meanwhile, Republican budget proposals will result in school layoffs, more potholes, and thousands of Minnesotans losing health care. Today’s news does not make their budget any less destructive for Minnesotans.”
