DULUTH, MN (KDAL) - The Mayors of Duluth, Minneapolis and Cloquet joined Revenue Commissioner Myron Frans on Tuesday in support of the Governor Dayton proposal to raise Local Government Aid (LGA) by 18.5 percent in his budget.  The news conference was held at the Public Library in Duluth as a reminder of how 2008 LGA cuts affected the operation of the library.  Mayor's Ness, Rybak and Ahlgren say that increasing LGA will also bring down property taxes.
