In what Minnesota Republicans are calling a first step in addressing the budget deficit, the Senate Taxes Committee approved a bill extending about $1 billion dollars in cuts for the next biennium, including $594.5 million dollars in tax aid and credit reductions. A good portion of the cuts come from Local Government Aid (LGA). In the past LGA cuts have led to higher local property taxes as cities and counties look to homeowners for the funding to provide essential fire, police and maintenance services.
