Minnesota senate republicans say they have a plan for a two-year budget that doesn’t include tax increases.
They say it’s designed to help balance the state’s budget after democratic Governor Tim Walz announced a proposal in late January that includes tax hikes on the wealthiest Minnesotans and large companies.
The GOP idea comes out to around $51.9 billion, and features $591 million in tax relief on paycheck protection program loans and tax elimination for unemployment benefits.
Other measures include a 5% cut to government administrative costs, $100 million for unemployment due to the pandemic, and $40 million in broadband, among others.
