Dayton To Unveil Budget On Tuesday
Gov. Mark Dayton is scheduled to release his budget proposal on Tuesday, and his key advisers are suggesting that the plan will represent a real shift in Minnesota government.
But Dayton, who has long been an advocate of higher taxes, will be laying out an agenda that could put him in a tough spot politically. Throughout 2012, Dayton asked voters to give him a DFL Legislature, which he now has. Now Dayton will need to deliver results, or his reelection bid of 2014 may be rocky.
Dayton has been out of of the public eye for the past three weeks as he recovers from back surgery. All information about his budget plan has come from his top advisers. Dayton is set to unveil the budget this morning.
