Viewpoint: 'Education session' was a successful one
I am proud of the work that was accomplished during my first term as state representative. Minnesota has been in an ongoing cycle of budget deficits for the last decade, due to one-time money, spending shifts and gimmicks. This session, we delivered an honest solution to fund Minnesota's priorities and close the $627 million budget deficit. Our budget puts an end to these gimmicks to put our state on stable financial footing into the future.
