ST. PAUL – Minnesota House Speaker Kurt Daudt has re-appointed State Representative Greg Davids (R-Preston) as Chairman of the Minnesota House Taxes Committee.
“I am so pleased Speaker Daudt has given me the honor of chairing the taxes committee once again,” Davids said. “I am ready to work hard for struggling lower and middle-class Minnesotans who are in desperate need of tax relief.”
Davids said his committee will oversee every tax program in the state and ensure that each is operating efficiently.
As chair of the taxes committee last session, Davids championed a proposal providing roughly $800 million in tax relief to hardworking Minnesotans, including small business owners, farmers, working families, and college students. The bill was approved by 89 percent of Democrats and Republicans in the Legislature, but was inexplicably vetoed by Governor Dayton.
Davids said crafting a similar proposal will be his top priority in 2017.
Davids previously served as taxes chairman in 2011-2012 and 2015-2016.
