GOP leader wants open tax change hearings
ST. PAUL -- The Minnesota House Republican leader says he wants to make sure that overturning a tax on farm implement repair is done in the open, unlike when lawmakers and Gov. Mark Dayton approved the tax in May.
Rep. Kurt Daudt, R-Crown, said on Monday that during or before a special legislative session next month that tax committees should hold public hearings on the plan to take the tax off the books.
Daudt said the tax was slipped in without any House hearings last May.
