Winona Senator Maybe Open to Removal of Some Sales Tax Exemptions
Minnesota's two year deficit problems are mountainous. Over six billion dollars in the red. A shortfall, one study found, that could be eliminated by simply getting rid of the state's various sales tax exemptions. But is there support for that? Maybe. First term Republican state senator Jeremy Miller from Winona says he may consider measures that would remove some targeted sales tax exemptions from certain services. But he would probably not agree to removing those sales tax exemptions for food or even clothing.
