Statement from House Majority Leader Winkler on budget negotiations

Sunday, May 12, 2019

St. Paul, Minnesota — The House, Senate, and Governor’s office concluded negotiations tonight  without an agreement on budget targets. The Republican-controlled Senate has yet to make a substantial offer in negotiations.

House Majority Leader Ryan Winkler released the following statement:

“Republican tax cuts for corporations and the wealthy are robbing Minnesotans of economic success and opportunity. House DFLers are waiting for Senate Republicans to move from their destructive budget’s starting position, actually make an offer, and get serious about compromise. Tonight it looks like an extreme Republican tax position is holding up budget talks. We have put forward an honest budget that makes needed investments to improve the lives of Minnesotans. We’re continuing to wait for Senate Republicans to make a real effort at compromise.”
