DFL Senators Tom Bakk and John Marty held a news conference in the Minnesota State Capitol today where they attacked the GOP-controlled Senate’s Omnibus Tax Bill, which includes deep cuts to property tax relief programs such as Local Government Aid and the renters’ property tax refund program. Early analysis of the bill suggests it would raise property taxes by $422 million over the next two years.
