Dayton's budget prioritizes education


Gov. Mark Dayton unveiled his $42 billion two-year state budget Tuesday — a plan that includes several educational initiatives, investments in transportation and new resources for families burdened by the high cost of childcare.

Lawmakers in the DFL-controlled Senate and the Republican-controlled House will consider the governor’s proposals as they debate their own spending priorities for the 2015 legislative session. The state faces a roughly $1 billion budget surplus.
