Gov. Mark Dayton’s Budget – Hearing on Wednesday

12 Apr

Support Governor Dayton’s plan to make the rich pay their fair share
Republicans in control of the Minnesota Legislature have passed budgets that will increase property taxes on middle class families, reduce vital services like snowplowing and police protection, kick vulnerable people off health care, and put tens of thousands more Minnesotans out of work.

On Wednesday morning, we have an opportunity to show them there is a better way.  The House Taxes Committee will hear Governor Dayton’s plan to protect working families. Under his plan, 95% of Minnesotans won’t see their taxes increase by even a penny. His plan will invest in creating jobs and preserve the vital services we all depend on. It does this by asking the richest Minnesotans and big corporations to pay the same tax rate they paid during the 1990s.

We need you to pack the committee hearing room to show legislators you support a budget that protects the middle class. If you are able, please join other working Minnesotans for the hearing on Wednesday at 10:15 am in Room 200 of the State Office Building in St. Paul. (If you’re interested in carpooling, please contact Geri Katz at geri.katz@mnnurses.org.)

If you can’t make it to St. Paul, please use the MNA Grassroots Action Center to tell your state representative and state senator to support Governor Dayton’s plan to make the wealthiest pay their fair share, and stop attacking the working class.
