DFL Gov. Mark Dayton will release a two year-budget proposal today that must solve a projected $1.1 billion deficit in the next biennium.

In addition to that spending blueprint, Dayton will present his plan for overhauling the state tax code. All of those tax and spending recommendations will be the focus of intense debate at the State Capitol over the coming months.

MPR's Tim Pugmire joins Cathy Wurzer this morning with a Minnesota Legislature preview.
