“Thanks to the leadership of Gov. Mark Dayton and DFL legislators, Minnesota’s economy continues to grow and Minnesota has another budget surplus.
“DFL leaders have made it a priority to improve the economy, create jobs and invest in education. We’ve seen great progress, evident in today’s budget surplus, but we know more work needs to be done.
“By using the budget surplus for wise investments tied to economic growth, like early childhood education and fixing our deteriorating roads and bridges, we will build a Better Minnesota where everyone is taking part in our economic success.”
