Lawmakers draw battle lines over 70% gas tax increase

There are only two weeks left before the legislative deadline to pass a new two-year state budget. The The GOP-majority Senate is still at odds with the DFL-majority House and governor over their proposed $2.1 billion tax increase, and the most contentious of these new taxes is the 70% increase in the gas tax.

You may have heard that increasing Minnesota’s gas taxes to 48-cents per gallon would give us the 4th highest gas tax in the nation. The Tax Foundation just released a new map that puts this in perspective.

Indeed, gas in Minnesota would cost almost 20-cents more per gallon than all of our neighboring states under Gov. Walz’s plan.
