There is only one week until the Legislature adjourns on May 23, and legislators still have a lot of work to do. The top priority for the CGMC is a $45.5 million increase in LGA, which would bring it back to the 2002 funding level. The Senate included this in their version of the tax bill, which is currently awaiting action in conference committee.

Take action today!

As a Greater MN city leader, it is critical that you contact your legislators, Senate Majority Leader Tom Bakk, House Speaker Kurt Daudt and Gov. Mark Dayton as soon as possible (no later than noon on Wednesday, May 18). Tell them:

  • Greater Minnesota city leaders and residents are counting on them to find a compromise on a tax bill that includes a $45.5M increase in LGA.
  • The $45.5M increase is already included in the Senate tax bill.
  • $45.5M would bring LGA funding back up to its 2002 level – and this doesn’t even account for inflation.
