As of Monday afternoon, the Legislature passed a bill which, if signed, would permanently reduce the Renters’ Credit for low- and moderate-income Minnesotans and would cut state aid to local governments.
The cuts are included as part of HF 130 the first major budget cut bill of the session, which results in a $900 million reduction in state spending. The bill passed out of conference committee Monday. Once out of conference committee, advocates opposing these cuts will rely upon Gov. Dayton to veto the bill in full, as this bill cannot be line-item vetoed.
