Republicans say a tax bill the Democrat-controlled Minnesota Senate passed Wednesday doesn’t have nearly enough tax relief for Minnesotans and Democrats want to spend the money instead. Senate Minority Leader David Hann says, “We have a 900-million-dollar surplus. None of it’s going to transportation, and 159 million left over to do tax relief.” Clearbrook Democrat Rod Skoe points to provisions that line up Minnesota with the federal tax code, plus he says “the Working Family Credit clearly is tax relief for working Minnesotans. So there *is* tax relief in this bill.” Tax relief, transportation funding and a bonding bill for state public works projects will all be part of negotiations in this closing week-and-a-half of the 2016 legislative session.
