With a DFL-controlled House, Senate and Governor’s office, Senate Majority Leader Tom Bakk and Speaker of the House Paul Thissen are in a unique position to influence the budget process.
While Minnesota may be in a better position than it was during the previous budget cycle, leadership from both houses face significant challenges in crafting the budget for the upcoming biennium. In addition to exploring the numbers in the new budget, we’ll take a look at the DFL leadership’s philosophies that drove those numbers.
Convened and moderated by former Speaker Steve Sviggum, this event will be followed by a budget forum on May 7th with Minority Leaders Senator Hann and Representative Daudt.
