SAINT PAUL, Minn. – Tonight, the House Committee on Ways and Means, chaired by Rep. Liz Olson (DFL – Duluth), approved the House Budget Resolution for the 2023 legislative session. The resolution – which reflects a joint framework announced Tuesday by House and Senate DFL leaders and Gov. Tim Walz – will guide lawmakers’ work as they assemble a new two-year state budget.
“DFLers in the House and Senate have worked closely with Governor Walz to develop a budget outline that’s balanced, aligns with Minnesotans’ values, and addresses the challenges families, neighbors, and communities are facing,” Rep. Olson said. “At the Capitol in the coming weeks, we will focus on enacting a new state budget that boosts opportunities for students of all stages of learning, makes Minnesota a healthier state, delivers solutions to help Minnesotans better afford their lives, and many more of our shared priorities.”
Soon, House committees will develop finance bills for each relevant area of the state budget.
