Hold onto your Wallets: The Legislature is Back in Session Today!

From The Taxpayers League of Minnesota

The Minnesota state legislature is back in session starting TODAY. With a $4.8 billion dollar deficit, state legislators and Gov. Pawlenty face some tough decisions. The Governor has already said that he wants to solve the deficit by reforming government and not raising taxes in this challenging economy. DFLers majorities in the House and Senate say all options must be on the table (code word for tax increases). Hold on to your wallets! It's going to be a bumpy ride!

Keep an eye on your legislators by visiting these websites:

  • Find contact information on your State Senator and State Representative.
  • Watch legislative committee and floor hearings here.
  • Follow bill introductions here.
  • As always, check the Taxpayers League website for the latest updates on protecting your tax dollars! Forward the eUpdate on to your friends and family and tell them to sign up too.
