A BREAKDOWN OF THE BUDGET DEAL

The budget deal agreed upon Thursday by DFL Gov. Mark Dayton and Republican legislative leaders would bridge the remaining $1.4 billion budget gap without any deeper cuts in essential services and without raising taxes.

WHAT REPUBLICANS OFFERED ON JUNE 30

Increase the accounting shift for K-12 schools by another $700 million. That would bring the total shift to $2.1 billion -- a delay of 40 percent of state aid to school districts.

Issue roughly $700 million in bonds against future tobacco settlement revenue to cover remaining budget gap.

Boost the per-student aid formula by $128 million to cover extra borrowing school districts may need to do because of delayed school aid.

Add $10 million to the University of Minnesota to equalize its budget reduction with Minnesota State Colleges and Universities.

Restore funding to Department of Human Rights and Trade Office.

WHAT DAYTON ADDED ON JULY 14

Republicans withdraw all controversial policy positions from spending bills.

The Legislature must pass a bonding bill of at least $500 million during the special session.

Eliminate the GOP proposal for 15 percent, across-the-board reductions in the state's workforce.
