Minnesota Budget Battle Deadline Gets Closer

by

ST. PAUL, Min. (MNN) -  Taxes remain at the center of the battle between Republicans and Governor Dayton, with just two weeks to finish the state budget.  The legislature is scheduled to adjourn on May 23rd.  The governor wants upper-income Minnesotans to pay more but Republicans won't budge.  Dayton has repeatedly told Republicans he won't enter the negotiations until the House and Senate resolve their differences and pass final budget bills.  In the meantime, Republicans say Dayton's tax increase will hurt job creation and further pinch struggling families.  Dayton responds Republicans' budget will hurt vulnerable Minnesotans and increase property taxes.
