Legislative Update: April 6, 2018

Posted By Administration, Monday, April 9, 2018
This past week has been the Easter/Passover break at the Minnesota Capitol. No hearings have occurred, no bills have been introduced, and no action has been taken on committee agendas. Lawmakers have been spending time in their Districts, or, if smart and lucky…on a beach in some far-flung location. When they return on Monday the focus will shift from policy bills to tax and capital investment bills. The next couple of weeks will set the stage for what the omnibus tax and omnibus bonding bill end up looking like, and while the two are not technically related, the politics of the Legislature really tie the two together. The Democrats want a robust bonding bill, something at or north of $1,000,000,000 while the Republicans typically want a large tax bill with cuts for business and individuals. The Governor is unlikely to sign a large tax bill unless he gets a bonding bill he can live with, so the fate of the two will be linked until the final moments of Session.
