Senate Finance Chair John Marty Releases Statement in Response to February Budget Forecast

SAINT PAUL, Minn. – The Minnesota Management and Budget Office released the February Budget Forecast Monday, projecting a $17.5 billion budget surplus. 

In response, Chair of the Senate Finance Committee Senator John Marty (DFL-Roseville) released the following statement:

“Minnesota’s strong financial health will allow us to deliver meaningful change for working families across the state. Most of the projected surplus is one-time funding, which requires a strategic approach as we build a responsible budget for today and the future. Together with my colleagues, we will continue working to create a budget that reflects our shared values by lowering costs, increasing stability, and ensuring an economy that works for all.”
