MJC Statement on House Unanimously Rejecting Gov. Dayton’s Proposed Gas Tax Hike

Minnesota Jobs Coalition President Mark Drake issued the following statement upon the House rejecting a gas tax increase.

“I commend the Minnesota House for uniting in a bi-partisan fashion to reject the Senate DFL and Gov. Mark Dayton’s proposed gas tax increase unanimously. An increase in the gas tax would make everyday activities more expensive for Minnesotans as DFL House Minority Leader Paul Thissen has pointed out on numerous occasions.”

The vote to unanimously reject this massive tax hike comes the same week the Senate gas tax hike passed with bi-partisan opposition.
