(St. Paul, MN) -- Battle lines are now drawn at the Capitol for the most contentious issue of the 2021 legislative session. The Republican-controlled Minnesota Senate passed its tax bill Wednesday afternoon. Majority Leader Paul Gazelka said, "probably the number-one thing about this bill that I think is really important, is we're not raising taxes at the end of a pandemic -- on anyone." D-F-L Minority Leader Susan Kent responds top-bracket tax increases are needed to help lower-income Minnesotans hit hard by the pandemic. She said,"they lost the jobs. They lost their income. They struggled with rent and child care, more than others." House Democrats' bill includes a tax increase on the wealthiest Minnesotans and largest corporations, which Governor Tim Walz proposed. The adjournment deadline is May 17th.
