ST. PAUL, Minn. — On Thursday, Senator Judy Seeberger (DFL-Afton) voted “yes” on a motion to move forward on the bill to fully eliminate the tax on social security benefits and pensions that do not qualify for social security. In response, Senator Seeberger released the following statement:
“I am proud to have voted ‘yes’ on a motion to move forward with the bill to eliminate the tax on social security benefits and the tax on pensions for those who do not qualify for social security benefits (including teachers, certain firefighters, police officers, State Patrol members, and more). I knocked countless doors on the campaign trail, and I heard time and time again that this is a priority to Minnesotans in my district. I will continue the work to progress this bill, which has received bipartisan support, through the legislature.”
The bill received a vote of 47-19 in favor of the motion and moved to the Senate floor.
