RELEASE: House GOP Statement on Budget Update

Tuesday, May 05, 2020

ST. PAUL, MN — House Minority Leader Kurt Daudt, R-Crown, issued the following statement regarding the budget update released Tuesday by Minnesota Management and Budget showing a $2.426 billion deficit, and a $3.6 billion overall drop in revenue. 

"Today’s budget update shows that our state is seeing the same financial struggles that families and businesses are facing. Democrat Governors in New York and Wisconsin have already come forward with billions in budget reductions to react to the COVID crisis, and it's time for Gov. Walz to do the same. Families and businesses cannot bear the burden of this crisis alone: government must share in the sacrifice."
