ST. PAUL¬-State Representative Peggy Scott participated in a small business listening session in Blaine last Wednesday, hosted by the MetroNorth Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee. Joining Scott were State Representative Tim Sanders (R-District 51A, Blaine), State Senator Debbie Johnson (R-District 49, Ham Lake), and Revenue Commissioner Ward Einess. Topics discussed by attendees included taxes, the housing market, and state competition for business development within the region and globally.
“Today we heard directly from our community’s business owners what they are facing and what the legislature can do to help them recover and grow,” said Scott. “The message was very clear: Do not raise taxes, do not let the DFL take away the mortgage interest tax deduction and other beneficial credits, and develop incentive packages to keep businesses in Minnesota and attract new investment as well.”
With the legislature set to reconvene in February, Representative Scott plans to work on translating the concerns of business owners into effective policy and she encourages constituents to continue to send in their ideas, concerns, and feedback. “As elected officials, we have a responsibility to listen to our constituents and respond with action. I am committed to preventing harmful tax and regulatory measures, and to facilitating a business environment that attracts investment and encourages long-term recovery and growth.”
