Fiscal Responsibility

Diane kept her promise to the families and job creators in Eagan and Burnsville by working hard to curtail state government spending and vote against job-killing tax increases. The result: a $6.3 billion deficit in 2011 became a $1.2 billion surplus in 2012.  The legislature made real progress slowing the growth of state spending, especially in health care.  We worked on the most ambitious government reform agenda in decades, with bills to reduce the size, reach, and cost of government.
