Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton included a higher education budget bill in a spate of vetoes Monday, arguing the legislation does not spend enough on the state's universities and student aid while criticizing several other provisions. Clean energy advocates had raised concern earlier on in the legislative session that the now vetoed Jobs and Energy Omnibus bill would remove regulatory oversight of numerous state's key energy programmes - including its successful solar rebate programme, "Made in Minnesota". Minnesotans can't afford another tax increase, nor do we need one when the state already has a $1.65 billion surplus.

"It's not where we want to be on that number, but that's a big step", Gazelka said.

But it wasn't all progress, as the years-long debate over how to fund transportation repairs appeared to hit a snag.

Dayton's proposal would raise $321 million, though his administration couldn't say Tuesday what that would mean in additional costs for the average driver.

House Speaker Kurt Daudt called it "significant movement" - but not without some steps backward. The legislature has been ready for weeks to compromise and get the job done, and it's time for Governor Dayton to join us.

The offer-trading follows more than a week of standstill at the Capitol, after the GOP backed away from the negotiating table and sent Gov. Mark Dayton their own budget bills. We urge governor Dayton to veto any bill that includes these anti-consumer measures. That means the fate of Dayton's prized preschool program - which Dayton sought to expand but Republicans proposed eliminating - is still up in the air.

And every two years, the same thing seems to happen: the legislature passes the bills, negotiations with the governor continue up to the end-of-session deadlines, and budget bills are ultimately passed with little or no time left to spare.
