Republican Minnesota legislators are proposing a more than 51-billion-dollar state budget. Leaders of the GOP-controlled Senate contend that the state doesn’t need to raise taxes considering that there are a projected budget surplus and billions in federal aid. The proposal counters Governor Tim Walz’s proposed spending plan that was revealed in January. His budget includes tax increases on top earners and corporations. Governor Walz plans to introduce a supplemental spending plan tomorrow.
