Rep. Dettmer Champions Balanced Budget Plan - 03/10/11
St .Paul, MN-Rep. Bob Dettmer stands in support of the Minnesota House Republicans budget targets that were announced today. Balancing the budget without raising taxes, the targets set clear priorities while having government live within its means. With a fiscally responsible plan that looks to build a path to prosperity in Minnesota through tax relief and government reform, Rep. Dettmer supports the Minnesota House Republican’s plan.
"We have taken a great step forward in moving towards a bright, sustainable future for all of Minnesota. We’ve put forth a plan that balances the budget while protecting Minnesota families and offering middle class tax relief," Dettmer said Thursday.
The targets contain a $3.6 billion dollar reduction in future spending while calling for a reduction in all state agencies spending by 15-percent. Funding priorities, not government remains the foundational principle of Republicans as they work with the Governor to balance the state’s budget.
