GOP House passes tax bill, testing Dayton

The Minnesota House has passed its bill squaring state taxes with the federal government.

Republicans made the sudden move Tuesday, testing Gov. Mark Dayton’s resolve over taxes.

Dayton vowed Monday he would not sign a so-called tax conformity bill until lawmakers provide $138 million in emergency funding to 59 Minnesota schools suffering budget shortages.

The Republican House and Senate are sending Dayton the bill anyway.

The House passed its bill Tuesday on a 78-50 vote, and the Senate is expected to follow suit Wednesday.

The GOP’s plan to modestly cut income tax rates is drastically different than Dayton’s proposal. The two sides have until Sunday night to strike a deal.
