Governor Dayton Budget hearing Wednesday night

26 Feb

Do you believe it’s time for the state budget to improve the lives of middle class families? Should the wealthiest Minnesotans pay their fair share? Should we invest in our state’s most important priorities? Governor Dayton’s budget proposal <http://www.mn.gov/governor/budget/>  achieves those goals, while fixing our state’s structural deficit and making government more efficient. It’s an honest budget without gimmicks.
The House Tax Committee will be hearing the Governor’s budget proposal <
http://www.mn.gov/governor/budget/>  tomorrow night. It’s important for supporters of Governor Dayton’s proposal to attend the hearing.

MNA supports Governor Dayton’s budget because it’s fair and honest, and because it includes measures that will improve Minnesotans’ health:
·       The proposal expands and improves Medicaid and establishes a Health Insurance Exchange, helping more Minnesotans access health care and reducing uncompensated care that hospitals have to provide.

·       The proposal increases the cigarette tax from 48 cents per pack to $1.42 per pack, which will reduce youth smoking and save thousands of Minnesotans from premature death and illness.
