Gov candidates talk nukes, taxes and budget

The three candidates for governor debated tax policy, the expansion of nuclear power in Minnesota and the state budget at a debate this morning at St. Thomas University’s Opus College of Business in Minneapolis. The college, along with The Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal, sponsored the debate.

Both Republican Tom Emmer and Independence Party candidate Tom Horner both say they support lifting the state’s ban on building new nuclear plants in Minnesota. Democrat Mark Dayton opposes the measure until issues surrounding nuclear waste storage are addressed.
