Minnesota Legislature passes $3 billion tax bill as Monday adjournment deadline nears
May 23, 2023
Minnesota lawmakers sent a sweeping $3 billion tax bill to the governor's desk on Sunday and were racing to finish other priorities ahead of their Monday adjournment deadline.
The DFL-controlled Minnesota Senate voted along party lines Sunday to pass the tax bill that includes one-time rebates, a credit for low-income families and higher taxes for some Minnesotans.
"This is a really good bill," Sen. Heather Gustafson, DFL-Vadnais Heights, said. "It's going to help out seniors. It's going to help out charities. It's going to help out families and children."
