Recently, the Budget News and Tools publication of the Minnesota Budget Project (May 2, 2013), issued a very useful analysis of the Minnesota House and Senate tax plans. The tax plans from the Governor, House and Senate are trying to make Minnesota’s tax system less regressive and end the sad story of continual budget deficits that seem to be chronic these days. Education plays a big role in these bills so it is worth paying attention! With these new proposals, we can hopefully fund investments in quality schools, affordable higher education and strong communities. So, two plans with common goals, different approaches. Read the analysis of the Senate and House omnibus tax bills. The bills are now in conference committee and call on policymakers to come to agreement.
The Minnesota Budget Project is an initiative of the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits.
