A budget surplus of $1.65 billion means Dayton may want to boost some of the funding targets he has for preschool funding, conservation efforts and higher education. The Democratic governor also has said he wants to prepare the state for federal funding cuts resulting from the proposed repeal of the Affordable Care Act.

Senate Republicans are also set to release their budget outline. It is expected to give some insight into how the lawmakers plan to pay for $900 million worth of tax cuts unveiled Thursday.
