Democratic leaders House Majority Leader Ryan Winkler, DFL-Golden Valley and House Speaker Melissa Hortman, DFL-Brooklyn Park spoke outside the House chambers last October.

The state would spend hundreds of millions more on education and add a public health care option and paid leave program under the budget vision Minnesota House Democrats debuted on Tuesday.

The $52.5 billion proposal is larger than the plans Gov. Tim Walz and Senate Republicans rolled out last week. But all three lack a key piece: the estimated $2.6 billion in one-time money state government expects to get through the latest federal stimulus package.

House Democrats presented their big-picture goals for spending but did not delve into their tax proposal for the next two-year budget.
