Senator Weber questions tax hikes

District 21 Senator Bill Weber, Republican lead of the Senate Taxes Committee, says the recent tax bill passed by Senate Democrats raises taxes by more than $2 billion, despite a budget surplus of more than $17 billion.

“Democrats are shortchanging Minnesota taxpayers out of a $19 billion surplus by failing to pass meaningful tax relief,” said Weber. “Instead, the tax bill raises taxes by more than $2.2 billion dollars over 4 years, harming our economic competitiveness and growing government at the expense of Minnesotans”
