House Tax Committee Chairman Rep. Paul Marquart issues statement about Republican tax proposal

Thursday, February 24, 2022

Saint Paul, Minn. — Chair of the House Tax Committee Rep. Paul Marquart issued the following statement today about a Republican proposal that would provide tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires.

“Democrats don’t think millionaires and billionaires need a tax cut. This year, we are focused on providing help to workers, families, and senior citizens who need it the most, like targeted tax cuts, bonus checks for our frontline workers, Paid Family and Medical Leave for workers who don’t have that option, lower child care costs for families, and lower health care costs for all. We can’t do that if Republicans use the budget surplus to provide tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires who don’t need the state’s help.
