Governor Dayton’s budget provides a good framework for final budget legislation

Our priorities for the FY 2014-15 state budget are to raise revenues to resolve the budget deficit and invest in the state’s future prosperity, and reform the tax system to make it less regressive.

Our recent issue brief digs into the details of the Governor’s budget proposal in key areas including health and human services, education, economic development, and tax reform, and concludes that it seeks to achieve these goals.

Governor Dayton’s FY 2014-15 Budget Focuses on Tax Reform, Financial Stability and Investments finds that the Governor’s proposal takes important steps to reinvest in Minnesota and restore financial stability after years of budget cuts and gimmicks, and provides a good framework for the Legislature to follow as the House and Senate work to put together final budget legislation.

Watch for our upcoming blogs on House and Senate budget bills to see how they match up against our priorities.
