(St. Paul, MN) -- Minnesota lawmakers are done for the year after needing legislative overtime to pass a 48-billion-dollar budget. The special session wrapped up Saturday morning after Republicans and Democrats worked out an agreement over the previous days. Public schools will be an increase in funding while a proposed gas tax hike didn't get through.
Small Tax Cut Passed By MN Lawmakers
One of the income tax rates
will fall after action by state lawmakers. The second-tier income tax
rate was lowered from the current seven-point-zero-five percent rate to
six-point-eight percent. The tax cut was included as part of a bill that
makes the state tax code similar to the federal code.
Lawmakers return to the Capitol on February 11th, 2020.
