The Minnesota Senate today approved a bipartisan $944 million tax bill aimed at jumpstarting the economy and helping workers and small business owners recover from COVID-19. The bill does not include any of the significant tax hikes proposed by Governor Walz and House Democrats, who proposed raising taxes by over $1 billion.

“This bill provides millions of dollars in tax relief, keeping money in your pocket and revamping our economy after a difficult year,” Senator Gene Dornink said. “Our state had a surplus and received billions in federal aid, it’s time we put Minnesotans first and let them spend their own money.”
