WASHINGTON (AP) - A spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner says President Barack Obama has called the speaker to say he still won't negotiate on ending the partial government shutdown or raising the nation's debt limit.
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.
For the second consecutive year in a row the city of East Grand Forks is going to get by without a levy increase. The city's preliminary budget was introduced this evening to city council members but as always the budget could have some changes in the upcoming weeks.
