The new two-year state budget takes effect in Minnesota today after a hard fight between Republicans and Governor Mark Dayton. Public schools get a two-percent increase in state funding each year totaling $371 million. Lawmakers allowed tuition increases next school year at state colleges and universities, but there will be no increases the year after. Spending on health and human services programs is significantly scaled back — one of the most controversial issues of the legislative session. Transportation projects get a $300-million increase, diverted from other areas of the budget.
