It’s expected Governor Tim Walz will propose an upper-bracket income tax increase when he rolls out his state budget plan TOMORROW, re-igniting a perennial debate at the State Capitol. House Speaker, Democrat Melissa Hortman:

“There are people and industries who are doing better in the pandemic, and it’s important that everybody’s paying their fair share as we go through these tough times.”

But Senate Republican Majority Leader Paul Gazelka says:

“I just want to let everybody know, we’re not gonna raise taxes. We’re not gonna raise the gas tax, no income tax, no sales tax (increases).”
