Reaction mixed from west central Minnesota lawmakers to revenue projection

Email

WILLMAR — Minnesota’s revenue forecast shows a glass that could be viewed as both half empty and half full.

During a briefing Wednesday, state officials from the Office of Management and Budget said surplus revenue means the state can make a $1.3 billion payment to schools to repay part of the $2.4 billion shift in education funding.

But that still leaves a budget deficit of about $1.1 billion still owed to K-12 schools.
