Statement from Rep. Steve Green re: Gov's budget proposal

Tuesday, January 26, 2021


ST. PAUL – State Rep. Steve Green, R-Fosston, issued the following statement Tuesday in response to the budget proposal Gov. Tim Walz issued for the upcoming biennium, including a $1.7 billion tax increase that would give Minnesota the nation’s second-highest business tax and third-highest income tax rates:

“The governor’s budget plan is just the same, tired liberal approach,” Green said. “When times are good, they want to raise our taxes. When times are bad, they want to raise our taxes. They always want to raise our taxes. It’s the same old excuses we’ve heard time and again. It’s just more of their talking points to divide people and pit us against one another so they can take more money from citizens while ignoring the state’s own irresponsible spending habits. People already are hurting financially in large part because of shutdowns the governor placed on our workers and now he wants to raise their taxes and cover his tracks.”
