Ward, Radinovich support tax cut bill

The Minnesota House Friday passed legislation to cut taxes for more than one million middle class families and repeal business-to-business taxes. House passage sent the bill to Gov. Dayton to be signed into law. State Representatives John Ward, DFL – Baxter, and Joe Radinovich, DFL – Crosby, voted for the bill.

“It’s great news for the people of Minnesota that we’re sending this bill to Gov. Dayton today,” said Rep. Ward. “With a growing economy and strong budget surplus, this is a great time to pass these tax cuts and continuing building on the progress we’ve made to grow Minnesota’s middle class.”

“More than a million middle-class, working Minnesotans will receive a tax cut under this bill,” said Rep. Radinovich. We made a lot of progress in the last year and this is another step to expand economic opportunity.”

Last session the House included federal tax conformity for tax year 2013 and beyond, but it did not end up in the final budget signed into law.
