RELEASE: Statement from Rep. Grossell on State Budget Surplus

Friday, March 2, 2018

St. Paul – State Representative Matt Grossell, R-Clearbrook, released the following statement regarding the $329 million budget surplus that was announced Wednesday.

“It’s great to see the common sense budget and tax reform passed by the Republican Legislature in 2017 spurring on Minnesota’s economy,” said Rep. Grossell. “We have set the table for Minnesotans to keep more of their paychecks and for the state to be in a good budgetary position going into the future.”

The $329 million surplus is an over half-billion dollar improvement from the November forecast that predicted a $188 million deficit.
