House, Senate Budget Suggestions

The Minnesota House and Senate passed bills last week to trim the state budget by $935-Million. The February economic forecast indicated tax revenue could be nearly a billion dollars less than expected. House Speaker Margaret Anderson Kelliher said she hopes the Governor approves of their suggestions. The budget bill includes a 1% increase for public education and a 2% cost of living allowance for nursing home workers, borrows money from the state's budget reserves and cuts money to state agencies.
