Dayton Proposes Gas Tax Hike

St. Paul — Earlier tonight, Mark Dayton proposed raising taxes yet again on Minnesota families. Ben Golnik, Chairman of The Minnesota Jobs Coalition issued the following statement in response.

“Mark Dayton’s appetite for higher taxes knows no bounds. At tonight’s debate, Dayton announced he’d raise the gas tax, impacting all Minnesotans around the state. This increased tax would hurt Minnesota families and businesses. It’s once again clear that Mark Dayton is wrong for Minnesota.”
