Back on track to what?


A letter by Dave Butcher in the Journal/Echo said Minnesota is back on track with the tax and spend that Gov. Dayton and the DFL passed at the Legislature. Back on track to what, may I ask?

You would think state government spending has starved, tax collections have been going down and the health exchange legislation was some cost-saving idea.
