Minn. projects $1.1 billion budget deficit

State Rep Paul Thissen DFL and State Senator Thomas Bakk DFL speaks about the budget announcement Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2012 in St. Paul, Minn. Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton and lawmakers will have to eliminate a projected $1.1 billion state budget deficit when their session convenes in January, a smaller shortfall than in recent years but one that gives Dayton a new starting point for his long push to raise income taxes on the state's wealthiest people.
