In the key vote letter sent to lawmakers, AFP-MN State Director Jason Flohrs wrote:

“At this point, Minnesota is not yet halfway through the budgeted biennium, and the projected $2.4 billion deficit is just that – projected. Instead of adding more spending – especially with no budget framework in place to guide decisions – lawmakers should revisit future commitments in light of new economic realities and refocusing funding on core functions and services of government. Every day that goes by is a missed opportunity to conserve the resources we still have for the most important priorities.”
