Legislative Update - Developing a Bipartisan Budget

Thursday, May 19, 2022

Dear neighbors,

After several months of hard work, lawmakers have developed a bipartisan framework for the supplemental budget! Our framework contains $4 billion to improve the lives of Minnesotans and make significant investments in education, health care, and public safety. It also includes $4 billion to provide tax cuts and reduce costs. 

While this is a step forward, there’s still plenty of work for legislators to do. We’re working around the clock to find more compromises and develop bipartisan bills.
