The 2021 legislative session came to a close yesterday with work still left to do and a special session on the horizon.
Following adjournment, Senator Ann Rest (DFL-New Hope) released this statement:
“I have been ready since day one to put in the work necessary to pass a state budget that will build a better Minnesota for all. It’s disappointing that we finished this legislative session with a lot more work still left on the table.
“As one of the Taxes conferees, I was pleased that the global agreement sent out included full conformity on PPP and UI. I hope as we continue the discussions with the House in preparation for a special session, that we reach a good result on the working family tax credit, property tax relief, low-income rental housing, local sales tax proposals, the historic tax credit, and other provisions that benefit Minnesota families and businesses.
“I look forward to continuing my work in a special session and remain committed to supporting our working families, providing help to our schools and students, protecting our democracy, and progressing our state forward to a clean future.”
