Minn. surplus good sign of recovery but doesn't reflect debt
WILLMAR -- The latest budget forecast released Wednesday showing the state brought in $323 million more than expected is good news. Sort of.
"I think it's good news," said Rep. Bruce Vogel, who viewed the forecast as a sign of a quick turnaround from a $5 billion deficit.
"It's a good day for Minnesota, to see us coming back," said Vogel, R-Willmar, especially since it comes on top of an $876 million surplus in November.
