Senator Tom Bakk Issues Statement on the November Forecast

ST. PAUL, Minn. – Senate Majority Leader Tom Bakk (DFL-Cook) released the following statement on the release of the November Budget and Economic Forecast:
“Minnesota has faced structural deficits every biennium since 2001. Democratic leadership is responsible for getting our state off the economic rollercoaster and creating long-term stability.” Sen. Bakk said. “We can see from today’s forecast that the work of the last two years to create a structurally balanced budget put the state on sound financial footing—which is why we find ourselves with a surplus today. This will allow us to continue to invest in the priorities we all share as Minnesotans.”
