State Representative Ann Lenczewski fact checks various Republican claims about the budget bill, taxes and South Dakota. For example, if South Dakota has such a great business climate, why are there no Fortune 500 companies in South Dakota? And if Minnesota has such a lousy business climate, why are there more Fortune 500 companies per capita in Minnesota than any other state? Representative Lenczewski should have the answers, she’s the chair of the House tax committee.
The budget bill passed the House 71-63 and sent it to Governor Pawlenty who has threatened to veto it.
