Operating Budget

Each odd-numbered year the Governor proposes, and the Legislature enacts, a two-year operating budget, often called the biennial budget. The budget process for the next biennium begins in July of even-numbered years when Minnesota Management & Budget issues budget instructions to state agencies. The Governor's budget recommendations are released in January of odd-numbered years and the legislature adopts a final budget during the legislative session.
