Near the end of the legislative session, the GOP-run Minnesota Legislature passed two tax bills. They're a fairly far cry from the massive, budget-obliterating handouts for wealthy business and luxury property owners that they'd tried for during most of the session, but they would negatively impact budgets for the state and/or cities, and there's no reason whatsoever to believe that they'd create jobs or significantly improve the state's economy in any way. So, it's a bit of a concern to me, that Governor Mark Dayton didn't bounce them immediately.
As for the omnibus tax bill, Dayton said there are many provisions he likes, but that he's still concerned about the impact of the bill's "tails" on the state's budget. A second package of mostly technical tax changes is also a concern to Dayton, because he said it contains local government aid formula changes that would hit certain cities hard. He said he plans to study both bills in detail before he decides whether to sign or veto them.
Hopefully, he's just looking to appear all serious and "gubernatorial," with that "study both bills in detail before he decides" language. As noted, there is no justification for throwing the righties a bone, with either of these.
