Rep. Heather Edelson Statement on 2019 November Budget and Economic Forecast

Thursday, December 5, 2019

ST. PAUL—Today, Minnesota Management and Budget (MMB) released the 2019 November Budget and Economic Forecast, showing a balance of $1.332 billion for the current biennium. Additionally, the Economic Forecast revealed that Minnesota continues to have low unemployment and a stable budget.

Representative Heather Edelson (DFL-Edina) released the following statement:

“Although Minnesota's economy is performing well, we must remain cautious and fiscally judicious. When we take into consideration inflation, our state faces significant budget deficits in the future, which would undermine our ability to deliver a world-class education, safe transportation infrastructure, and good health care for Edina families. Making smart investments in these core values will build a better Minnesota for all of us.”
