Governor Mark Dayton today made two compromise offers to House Republicans to try to break the deadlock at the State Capitol over transportation funding. Both offers would increase license tab fees, but the increase would be larger in one of Dayton’s proposals because he would drop his push for a gas tax increase. The governor is moving Republicans’ way, but apparently not far enough. House Speaker Kurt Daudt says, “I think Minnesotans sitting at home watching all of this are gonna say, wait a second, you’ve got a 900-million dollar surplus. Why do you need to raise 680 million of taxes, or take 680 million dollars more from Minnesotans?” Dayton also proposes increasing the metro area sales tax to pay for transit improvements. There’s less than a week remaining in the legislative session.
