New Minnesota budget forecast shows $323 million surplus


ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A new economic forecast being released Wednesday shows Minnesota has a $323 million budget surplus.

The forecast is outlined in a summary document prepared by Minnesota Management and Budget and obtained by The Associated Press from two people who received it ahead of its official release. They provided the information on condition of anonymity because state budget officials were not scheduled to detail the forecast publicly until later in the day.
