Editorial: It'll take teamwork to fix the deficit
Minnesota is facing the worst economic recession since World War II, one that far exceeds the recession of the early 1980s.
The facts are what they are. The state budget forecast released Tuesday for fiscal 2010-2011 pegged the deficit at $4.57 billion. This deficit total declined by $1.3 billion due to the aid Minnesota will receive from the federal stimulus package.
Most experts believe this recession will get worse before it gets better.
