Democrats want to see the whole package, as Minnesota Senate Republicans move forward with part of their plan for long-term road and bridge funding. A committee passed a bill Wednesday to put sales taxes on car parts into a dedicated fund, but Minneapolis Senator Scott Dibble questioned what other areas of the state budget will suffer. Dibble said, “I’m not prepared to make a decision of this magnitude today, in isolation of a lot of other conversations that need to occur.” But Faribault Republican John Jasinksi calls it a “good positive outcome” that’s building a compromise. Governor Mark Dayton said he’s open to options but the only plan he’s seen so far that will address the state’s long term transportation needs is a gas tax increase.
