Minnesota’s Biennial Budget

One of the biggest responsibilities legislators have is crafting a budget to manage the state’s responsibilities. 2015 is the year that legislators put together a comprehensive budget and fund our shared priorities in the fiscal years of 2016 and 2017. This is a large endeavor, requiring compromise and commitment to issues and areas that affect every day Minnesotans in a variety of ways. While we’ve been hard at work this session, in the next five week we will be working overtime to pass a final budget.

The Senate, House and Governor have all laid out broad budget proposals. Now it’s your turn! Below are the budget plans that have been laid out. Use this tool to propose your own plan for Minnesota, and learn a little bit more about what it takes to craft a budget.
