Viewpoint: Minnesota’s finances on solid ground
Minnesota has the fifth-fastest growing economy in the nation, and it’s no accident.
February brought great news for all Minnesotans. The office of Minnesota Management and Budget announced that Minnesota has a $1.2 billion surplus. In just the past 15 months, we have gone from $1.1 million in the red to $1.2 million in the black. And it gets better. Early projections have Minnesota’s surplus for the 2016-17 biennium at $2.6 billion.
