Details were to be released later, but Minnesota Management and Budget officials said that even with the projected budget deficit for the next two years, “current conditions will allow the state to reduce the K-12 education shift by $1.3 billion of the $2.4 billion outstanding but that improvement does not continue into next budget period.”
Gov. Jack Dalrymple unveiled his budget for the next biennium on Wednesday, calling for permanent property tax relief, $102 million for Fargo-area flood control projects, a new funding formula for higher education and $2.5 billion in transportation upgrades.

Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton a predicted a "strong likelihood" of a state government shutdown Tuesday after vetoing the Republican-controlled Legislature's budget and guaranteeing that a special session would be necessary to craft a new one.
The Minnesota Legislature adjourned its regular session late Monday with no sense of finality and no budget deal with Gov. Mark Dayton, forcing lawmakers to leave town and await the governor's call to return for a special session to solve a $5 billion deficit.
Special session may be needed
The next-to-last day of Minnesota's legislative session trickled away Sunday with no evident movement on a budget impasse between Gov. Mark Dayton and Republican legislative leaders.
