ST. PAUL - Gov Mark Dayton says taxes on average Minnesotans would not increase under the budget proposal he released at midday.

The plan includes a mixture of tax increases and decreases and it would spend more on education and jobs programs. It also cuts some specific programs.


Dayton's plan would increase revenues about $2 billion, with about half going to fill the state deficit and the rest to increase spending in areas such as education and jobs programs.
