Rural budget impact: bad or good?
ST. PAUL -- Gov. Mark Dayton says his budget plan favors greater Minnesota, but rural legislators are not so sure.
The Democratic governor said property tax relief like he proposes is most needed by rural Minnesotans, where the tax has soared in recent years.
On top of that, few of the state's richest 2 percent live outside the Twin Cities, so the burden of his tax-the-rich proposal avoids much of greater Minnesota.
