Sen. Thompson Talks Taxes, Education

Sen. Dave Thompson (R-District 58), who represents the Dakota County precinct of Northfield, gives a legislative update.

Dear Neighbors,

It has been a busy couple of weeks at the Capitol.  Governor Dayton continues to talk about his budget and push for additional sales, income, and business-to-business taxes. I disagree with Governor Dayton’s approach. Prosperity is the result of free market competition, innovation, and growth.  These things are achieved when government adopts the pro-growth policies of minimal taxation and regulation. Greater prosperity reduces the need for government services.  There is then plenty of money to provide the basic government services we all want and expect. In the attached update, I discuss S.F. 5, Medical Existence Expansion, taxes, education, and transportation.
