LOOKING AHEAD: On Tuesday, the Senate Education Committee plans a hearing on a proposal from Senator Lee Schoenbeck, R-Watertown, to expand the tax credits on annual insurance premium tax returns to $3.5 million from the current $2 million. These are monies that insurance providers donate for Partners in Education scholarships rather than pay the state Division of Insurance as taxes.

EXTRA CREDIT: In case you missed it, KELOLAND News reporter Rae Yost took a look at the taxes and fees that the governor has proposed repealing… AP’s Stephen Groves reports state Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg hasn’t filled the missing and murdered coordinator’s position the Legislature created last year because, according to Ravnsborg, money hasn’t come through.
