Minn. Lawmakers Jump Into Session's Business

February 25, 2014, 5:11 AM

Minn. Lawmakers Jump Into Session's Business
ST. PAUL, MN -

Minnesota lawmakers aren't wasting any time before diving into key topics in the brand-new session.

The Legislature convenes at noon Tuesday for a session that must wrap up by mid-May.

The House Tax Committee planned to start its discussion about taxes it might cut or repeal altogether given a state budget surplus. Two dozen tax-cut bills were on the docket. Many of them relate to business-to-business sales taxes, such as assessments on warehousing services that are due to begin in April unless lawmakers reverse course sooner.

Meanwhile, supporters of an increase of the state's minimum wage were hosting a big rally in the Rotunda. Competing bills to boost the $6.15 per hour minimum passed last year but the House and Senate couldn't reach a compromise.
