 Gov. Mark Dayton on Tuesday will present his budget proposal, which will give shape to this year's legislative session and could reframe Minnesota's taxing and spending for years to come.

Dayton, who has been absent from the Capitol for weeks after a December back surgery, will publicly roll out his plans at 11 a.m. in the Department of Revenue building.

According to the governor's office, "Immediately following the governor’s presentation, Commissioner of Education Brenda Cassellius, Commissioner of DEED Katie Clark Sieben, Commissioner of DHS Lucinda Jesson and Director of Higher Education Larry Pogemiller will each hold a press availability at the Department of Revenue."

From a Star Tribune piece on what's expected:

Making good on a campaign pledge, the governor is expected to ask Minnesota's wealthiest residents to pay higher state income taxes and to end a menu of corporate tax breaks.

Dayton has also pledged to include some spending cuts and more government streamlining. The potential payoff for Minnesotans: Dramatically lower corporate income tax rates, direct property tax relief and more money for education, a top priority for Dayton and many business leaders.
