Last night, the tax conference committee adopted the House’s position of phasing out LGA to Minneapolis, St. Paul and Duluth. The committee also adopted the Senate position of paying LGA at the 2010 paid amount, rather than the certified 2011 levels for greater Minnesota. Rep. Ann Lenczewski (DFL-Bloomington) was the sole vote against these provisions. The committee also extended the levy limits that have been in place for another two years.
The conference committee expects to wrap up its work today. The conference committee report will likely be voted on the floor of the House and the Senate early next week. A copy of the LGA run can be found here.
