Governor Mark Dayton will deliver the annual State of the State address tonight at 7 p.m.
“The governor and the DFL-controlled Legislature have worked hard over the past two years to pass legislation that resonates with Democratic voters,” writes MPR News reporter Tom Scheck.
The minimum wage increase, legalizing same-sex marriage and raising income taxes on the top 2 percent of filers are just a few examples.
They also passed measures popular with independent voters. After raising $2.1 billion in taxes last year, Dayton is now touting $443 million in tax cuts passed this year. Funding for all-day kindergarten and increasing school spending are also major talking points.
