Budget Woes Continue

Last night the House and Senate Republicans offered Gov. Dayton a new budget compromise in an attempt to bridge the state’s budget gap.

The Republicans offered to spend an additional $110 million on education and the courts, the first sign of movement from the majorities since Dayton vetoed most of the Republican budget bills to close the legislative session last month. The offer increases spending on public safety and the judiciary by $30 million. That figure is a 100 percent match with the Governor’s funding request for the courts, Republican leaders said in a release. Dayton said the offer was “worthwhile” but reiterated his stance that the two parties are still a long ways apart on avoiding a state government shutdown July 1.
