Senate defeats passes tax bill

Yesterday, the DFL Senate put the kibosh on DFL Senator Larry Pogemiller's tax bill. Today, with the business tax increase stripped out, they passed it.

Republicans and some DFLers didn't like Pogey's business property tax increase, but with it removed from the bill, all but one DFLer voted for it. It will provide relief for counties and cities, while closing corporate tax loopholes to pay for it. Not a bad bill, I guess.

Since the leadership in the House is adamantly opposed to any tax increases, though, the chances of this actually becoming law seem slim.
