(St. Paul, Mn) -- A state senate committee this morning debates extending Minnesota's sales tax to clothing and internet purchases.
The sales tax discussion is part of a larger debate over tax increases -- and lawmakers are waiting to see what Governor Dayton proposes when he rolls out his budget plan next Tuesday.
Republican Senator Julianne Ortman from Chanhassen worries Dayton will go beyond just tax reform, and propose "more tax increases to pay for more spending."
Dayton's revenue commissioner, Myron Frans, responds the governor's budget and revenue package is to address problems and make sure Minnesota is investing in areas that are important to the state.
