Governor Dayton Committed to Reasonable, Balanced, Complete Budget Solution

January 18, 2011

St. Paul—Governor Mark Dayton released the following statement regarding today’s budget cutting proposal from House and Senate Republicans:
 
“I will not agree to piecemeal cuts and partial solutions eliminating the $6.2 billion deficit in the next biennium.  I will propose a reasonable, balanced and complete budget solution on February 15th, and I ask the legislature to do the same thereafter, with citizen participation through hearings and very careful consideration of the effects of their decisions on people’s lives.”
