Dayton, GOP at odds over school aid, taxes

Gov. Mark Dayton and Republicans who control the Legislature are at an impasse over $138 million in emergency school aid and a plan that would cut taxes for 2.2 million Minnesotans.

As the legislative session entered its final week Monday, Dayton said at a news conference that he would not support a Republican tax bill unless lawmakers consider his one-time school spending proposal. "I won't stand for it," the DFL governor said of GOP resistance to the plan. "I will not engage in any negotiations on the tax bill or sign any tax bill until we have an agreement to provide emergency school aid."
