Legislative Update-State Budget Forecast & Warm Holiday Greetings

Thursday, December 5, 2019
Rep. Edelson

Dear Neighbors,

Today, Minnesota Management and Budget (MMB) released the 2019 November Budget and Economic Forecast, showing a balance of $1.332 billion for the 2020-2021 biennium. Additionally, the Economic Forecast revealed that Minnesota continues to have low unemployment and a stable budget.

Although Minnesota's economy is performing well, we must remain cautious and fiscally judicious. When we take inflation into consideration, 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.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out with input on what budgetary values are important to you and your family.

I’d like to take this opportunity to wish and your family peace and joy this holiday season.

All too often, an entire year goes by without showing our appreciation for those around us. The holidays are such a wonderful way to celebrate, show gratitude, and spread joy with those we care about. Thank you for all that you do to make our community such a great place to live.

Please stay in touch. I value your input and am honored to represent you at the State Capitol.


Heather Edelson

State Representative
