Capitol Update from Rep. Tama Theis

Friday, May 17, 2019

Dear Neighbors,

Here’s the latest news from the Capitol:

Budget negotiations are ongoing. Democrats have so far refused to compromise on tax increases, continuing to pursue over $12 billion in unnecessary tax increases. Our budget surplus is over $1 billion, and Republicans proved in the last biennium that we can fund our obligations without raising taxes. I refuse to raise taxes on hardworking Minnesotans when there is no logical reason for it.

Representatives Demuth, Erickson, Bennett, Kiel, and I on the House Floor during session this week!

It’s an honor to be your voice at the Capitol. Have a wonderful weekend!
