Thanks to everyone that came out to our recent town hall meeting in Oak Grove! It was great to chat with you and discuss your priorities for the 2023 legislative session. I encourage all of you to reach out to me or my office to continue sharing what’s important to you and your family. My contact information can be found below.
On Monday, we received word from state economists that our budget surplus has remained largely unchanged and still stands at $17.5 billion. The real number is likely closer to $20 billion, but because inflation is now required to be factored into the forecast, the official surplus is $17.5 billion.
Once again, a surplus of this size is proof that you are being overtaxed and that Minnesota government has over-collected from taxpayers. That’s why I continue to advocate for returning the surplus back to you through permanent tax relief.
I am excited to share that on Tuesday, House and Senate Republicans released our “Give it Back” tax plan. This is a package of proposals that provide immediate relief as well as policies aimed at continuing the relief into the future.
Here are the details:
This is about making sure that you can keep more of your hard-earned money. You deserve it, and I will keep fighting to make tax relief a reality for all Minnesotans.
Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, concerns, or ideas on ways to improve state government. I can be reached by phone at 651-296-4237 or via email at email@example.com
Have a good day,
