In an interview that will be aired on the KMRS Legislative Corner program this Sunday morning, District 12A State Representative Jeff Backer was critical of the amount of what he sees as overspending in Governor Tim Walz’s budget proposal that was revealed this week.

Backer was supportive of some items in the governor’s budget, such as spending on education, increasing the number of corrections officers in the prison system, and funding for rural broadband.
