What’s being called the “largest tax increase in 30 years” was approved by the DFL-controlled Minnesota House Wednesday night. Every Republican representative in the state voted against the measure, including local representative Paul Torkelson. Democrats defend top-bracket income tax increases, a cigarette tax hike and an alcohol tax increase to raise money for schools. Local DFL’er Clark Johnson says the bill also includes long-overdue property tax relief, which is accomplished by increasing Local Government Aid. The Minnesota Senate will vote on its tax bill in a few days. It includes extending the sales tax to clothing.
