ST. PAUL, Minn. – Today, Senate Republicans outlined their 2020 tax bill proposal, a plan that lacks any property tax relief while costing the more than $1 billion. In response, Senator Erik Simonson (DFL-Duluth) released the following statement.
“The tax bill released by Senate Republicans today is an irresponsible plan that, if enacted, would spend over $1 billion and put Minnesota’s economic stability in jeopardy. Until we receive an updated budget forecast, any proposal is nothing more than a wish list. Let’s see what the February forecast numbers are, and then focus on a bill that helps Northern Minnesota succeed. The Senate DFL is committed to policies that help working Minnesotans.”
