Star Tribune | March 22, 2014

More than 1.2 million Minnesotans are in line for tax breaks under a measure Gov. Mark Dayton signed Friday, spreading $444 million in permanent tax relief around the state and giving DFLers who control the Capitol an election-year accomplishment to sell to voters.

Working families, married couples and parents who adopted children are among the biggest winners. Some college students with loan debt, low-income families and those who lost their homes to foreclosure may also be eligible for tax relief, and the bill deletes a handful of sales taxes on businesses that Dayton and the Legislature approved last year.

To fund the $12 million renovation, the city has asked Dayton and state lawmakers for $6 million in state bond funding, which will be negotiated as part of a larger bonding bill. Another $1 million would come from gifts and philanthropic foundations. The city would put in $5 million, with the expectation that the money would be paid back from event revenue and a theater bar.
