ST. PAUL, MN (KDAL) - Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton has released a revised budget plan for the state. In his news release, the Governor says the plan focuses on improving the lives of Minnesotans by making investments in education, job creation and a stronger middle class. Highlights of the plan includes 640 million dollars for education, providing more access to early education and all day kindergarten, investing 86 million in economic development initiatives and property tax relief to families and businesses. The new investments are made possible by an increase in taxes for the wealthiest 2 percent of Minnesotans and closing corporate tax loopholes. The Governor's new plan eliminates sales tax additions that were featured in his first proposal.
