Dayton Talks Budget In Mankato

MANKATO – Governor Mark Dayton was in Mankato Wednesday to talk about his budget, which would protect cities and counties from cuts to Local Government Aid.

"To cut further would just impose additional property tax burdens," said Dayton
Dayton says past cuts to LGA have trickled down to taxpayers.

"For every dollar you cut in local government aid, property taxes go up 65 cents," according to Dayton.

The governor says his budget proposal would keep 95 percent of Minnesota taxpayers from seeing higher income taxes or a state-timposed property tax increase.
