Sen. Scott Dibble (DFL-Minneapolis) and Rep. Frank Hornstein (DFL-Minneapolis) are committed to working together with Governor Walz to build the state all Minnesotans deserve with high-quality education, affordable and accessible health care, increasing support for working families, and ensuring our infrastructure supports a strong economy.
Minnesota Senate DFL Leader Tom Bakk, DFL-Cook, Assistant Senate DFL Leader Susan Kent, DFL-Woodbury, and Senator Scott Dibble, DFL-Minneapolis, praised Governor Walz today for making historic investments in Minnesotans’ top priorities.
This budget would implement historic levels of funding for our schools, establish a public option to drive down costs and expand access to high-quality health care, and support necessary improvements to our state’s infrastructure.
Today’s proposal makes a historic investment in the basic funding formula, which will guarantee that every student in Minnesota gets a world-class education.
Today’s budget proposal reflects a strong commitment to the values and priorities that have and continue to make Minnesota a great state.
I applaud Governor Walz’s commitment to prioritizing the health care needs of Minnesotans in today’s budget. Affordable, high-quality health care access remains out of reach for far too many people, but today’s proposal takes meaningful steps in addressing these needs.
