The Minnesota Senate approved a tax-relief package Thursday in response to the coronavirus pandemic, setting up a battle with House Democrats who have raised concerns about the cost.

The bill, approved on a 40-27 vote, would postpone the due date for roughly $1 billion in state taxes, expand a number of tax credits and cut rates for charitable gambling. Republican Sen. Roger Chamberlain of Lino Lakes, the sponsor of the legislation, said lawmakers are "directly, aggressively trying to support employers and employees across the state" with the changes.
