The Legislature has sent Gov. Mark Dayton a bill that will allow about 250,000 Minnesota taxpayers to claim new federal tax deductions on their state releases as well.
The House gave the legislation final approval Monday and DFL Tax Chair Ann Lenczewski says it has something for just about everyone in it.
But some Republicans objected to several changes made by the Senate from an earlier House bill. Representative Steve Drazkowski said the bill turns the iron range's IRRRB into a board consisting of all lawmakers and no citizens from the area, which he calls a conflict of interest.
