State Senator Nick Frentz of North Mankato says the budget news state received last week is good news. Frentz says what will be done about it is anyone’s guess.

“It’s a good problem to have”, said Frentz. “I’ve talked to many legislators since the news came about and I haven’t heard one of them give the same answer. So as we like to say in the Senate, never a dull moment, we’ll see.”

The state announced last Thursday lawmakers will begin the legislative session with a one-point-three billion dollar surplus.
