Today is the deadline for the governor to sign or veto the 2016 tax bill. The bill passed with the support of 89 percent of the Legislature, passing 123-10 in the House and 55-12 in the Senate.
The bill includes half a billion dollars in permanent, ongoing middle-class tax relief over the next three years.
The governor has threatened to veto the bill despite agreement from Republicans to make two changes he requested to fix a drafting error and restore a small sales tax exemption. It's time for the governor to put politics aside, do what's right, and sign the bill to give long-awaited tax relief to thousands of Minnesota families.
Please contact the governor and urge him to sign the tax bill. You can call his office toll free at 800-657-3717 or email your comments to the governor by clicking here. Please be respectful in any comments you make.
