DFLers to Discuss the Deficit During Upcoming Town Hall
The three local legislators will be joined by House Chief Fiscal Analyst Bill Marx, who will give a short presentation on the state budget.
House District 51A Rep. Sandra Masin (DFL), House District 56B Rep. Will Morgan (DFL) and Senate District 51 Sen. Jim Carlson (DFL) will hold a town hall meeting at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 26 at Burnsville City Hall.
House Chief Fiscal Analyst Bill Marx will also be on hand to give a short presentation on the state budget before the legislators open up the meeting for questions and discussion. Minnesota is facing a $1.1 billion budget deficit and still owes its K-12 schools another $1.1 billion.
“It’s clear that our state is facing some challenges,” Masin said in a press release. “We have to decide what we value as Minnesotans, and how to best close this deficit while funding the priorities that will make our state successful for future generations. I hope folks can attend and participate in this important discussion.”
