More tax cuts being debated

Rep. Ann Lenczewski

ST. PAUL, Minn. (KFGO AM) -- House Democrats have rolled out a second tax-cut plan after the Minnesota Legislature passed its first round of cuts last week.

Bloomington Representative Ann Lenczewski says most reductions in her bill are property tax cuts.

The bill reduces taxes about $102 million.

But Republicans say all the rest of the budget surplus -- about seven times that amount -- should be returned to taxpayers.

House Minority Leader Kurt Daudt suggests the "marriage penalty" on income taxes be eliminated retroactively for tax year 2013 instead of 2014 forward, as the legislature already approved.
