Rep. Carlson




Dear Neighbors,

It’s hard to believe we’re already midway through October. I hope you are enjoying our changing seasons and all Minnesota has to offer!

October Revenue Report

Minnesota Management and Budget (MMB) is reporting state general fund revenue was $657 million above the forecasted amount for the first quarter of Fiscal Year 2022, beginning July 1. 

The latest MMB information compares actual receipts for July, August and September of 2021 to receipts projected by the February 2021 Budget Forecast. These projections as adjusted to take into account laws enacted after that projection for the same period.

Although this is good news, we must remember the budget forecast is only a projection and many factors remain unknown as we continue to recover from the pandemic. I will continue to prioritize investments in our families, businesses, and schools to ensure we can all get ahead and thrive post-pandemic.
