Minnesota Budget Works

Written by

(AP) Gov. Mark Dayton says he'll try to pare back an overseas corporate tax break to finance a tax credit he wants for Minnesota companies that hire veterans, students or the currently unemployed. The tax break-for-tax break swap is the cornerstone of a supplemental budget he released Monday. It contains roughly $60 million in changes to a multibillion-dollar budget. Other features include reversing some health program cuts made a year ago. Lawmakers set the state's two-year budget last year and technically don't have to adjust it. Dayton's proposal hinges on the reduction of a tax preference for Minnesota businesses with overseas operations or subsidiaries. The change would generate $40 million if enacted this year. Republicans have long resisted the corporate tax change, arguing it would be a hardship on businesses.

Right To Work Brings Out Demonstrators

Written by

(AP) Many hundreds of union members are demonstrating outside a state Capitol hearing room as a Senate committee weighs making Minnesota a ``right to work'' state. Supporters of the Republican-sponsored measure want an amendment on November's statewide ballot. It would ask voters whether Minnesota's Constitution should be amended to make private and public union membership voluntary.

 

 

Demonstrators surrounded the hearing room and filled overflow areas Monday morning. They loudly chanted while amendment backers testified. Under current law, employees in union-represented workplaces not in the union still pay a ``fair share'' fee of up to 85 percent of normal dues. Amendment backers say that's not fair. They say the amendment would improve Minnesota's business climate. But union backers say those workers still benefit from the wages, benefits and conditions bargained by unions.

Busy Week At The Capitol

Written by

(AP) The state Assembly is expected to sign off on a bill this week that would create a wolf hunt in Wisconsin. The Assembly is set to take up the measure during a floor session Tuesday, but it's unclear when the vote may happen. The two-year legislative session ends on Thursday and majority Republicans have placed dozens of bills on Tuesday's calendar. They'll likely work through Tuesday night into Wednesday. The wolf hunt vote might not come until early Wednesday morning or even later. The Senate approved the measure last week. Assembly approval would send the bill to Gov. Scott Walker for his signature. The governor hasn't committed to the bill. Walker's spokesman says the governor will evaluate the measure when it reaches his desk.

County Clerk Says Id Changes Frustrating

Written by

A Wisconsin judge last week granted a temporary injunction to groups trying to stop the state’s controversial new voter identification law. Dane County Circuit Judge David Flanagan’s decision to grant the injunction stops the law from being in effect for the state’s April 3rd presidential primary election. And just when things were going so good says La County Clerk, Ginny Denkmeyer.

A Dane County judge is expected to rule today on a possible second injunction barring enforcement of Wisconsin's voter ID requirement.

No One Hurt In Monroe County Train Accident

Written by

Somehow, a car train accident in Monroe County resulted in no injuries. Monroe County dispatch received a call from the Canadian Pacific Rail road a little after 7 last night, advising that they had hit a car at a private crossing between Cty Hwy M and Cty Hwy ET in the town of LaGrange. When officers and EMS arrived on scene they found a vehicle on the north side of the tracks. The driver, 24 year old Gabriel Hedke of Tomah, was out of the vehicle and appeared to be unhurt.  Hedke told police that he did not see the train until just before he hit it. Hedke was arrested for OWI. There were no injuries to any train personnel and no damage to the train.

Written by

Hedge fund manager Eric Hovde announced his Republican candidacy for the U.S. Senate Thursday by lashing out at the Obama stimulus and the TARP banking bailout program. He made a stop at Empire Printing today in Onalaska...we asked him...why there?

He’s the CEO of Hovde Capital Advisors. He’s the fifth Republican to run for the Senate seat that’s being vacated by Democrat Herb Kohl. They’ll all square off in a GOP primary in mid-August.
