Out front of the governor's retreat from business taxes
This news release from Friday afternoon says it all: the governor's business tax plan had gone toxic. I got the news release at 1:14 p.m. Friday...I need to check the timestamp on the governor's announcement and figure out whether Norton (and maybe others who put out similar news releases) took cover in time.
Representative Kim Norton Meets With Governor Dayton
Norton And Other DFL Legislators Voiced Concerns On B2B Taxes
SAINT PAUL, MN — Yesterday, Rep. Kim Norton (DFL - Rochester) and other DFL legislators met with Gov. Mark Dayton to discuss the state budget. At the meeting Rep. Norton and others shared their concerns about the Governor’s business-to-business tax proposal.
“I had been hearing from constituents and members of the Rochester business community that the Governor’s proposed business-to-business taxes would have had a significant negative impact on their business,” said Rep. Norton. “I appreciate the Governor’s willingness to listen to me and others and adjust his proposal to match what we’ve been hearing from Minnesotans.”
To contact Representative Norton can be reached by phone at (651)-296-9249, by email at email@example.com, or by mail at 593 State Office Building, 100 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd., St. Paul, Minnesota 55155.
