Minn Senate Republicans delay action on tax cut

ST.PAUL, Minn. (KFGO AM) -- A tax bill that DFL leaders hoped to move quickly through the Minnesota Senate has been slowed down by Republican lawmakers, who say they need to review it thoroughly.

Republican Senator Julianne Ortman of Chanhassen says lawmakers need to make sure they are sending off a bill to the House that clearly details the Senate's intent.

Suspending Senate rules to allow speedy approval would have required support from some of the chamber’s Republican members, and that didn't happen.

Governor Mark Dayton released a statement, saying there was no good reason to block the passage of the bill on the fast track; he has been urging the bill's passage prior to this weekend, so that Minnesota tax filers do not have to file amended tax returns.
