U of M students offer their versions of a balanced state budget

Governor Dayton and state lawmakers still haven’t agreed on a deal to fix the state’s $5 billion budget deficit. The two sides are talking, but the legislature’s Monday adjournment deadline is coming up fast.

While they duke it out at the Capitol, a group of University of Minnesota students has come up with several budget fixes of their own.  Developing a balanced state budget was the final project this semester for a government class at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs.

You can see my story on the students’ project at the Minnesota Public Radio news website.
