The Legislature returned from Easter/Passover break to continue work on the two-year budget. On Monday, House DFL legislative leaders unveiled key budget bills which include significant ongoing investments in education and prioritizes economic assistance to those most impacted by COVID-19. The legislation asks big corporations and the wealthiest to pay their fair share to contribute to these needed investments to help those most impacted by the pandemic.
As we craft a budget that works for everyone, I look forward to listening to your priorities to help all Minnesotans make it through the pandemic and thrive in the future.
