Negotiators agree to new type of 'Jesse checks'
ST. PAUL -- Farmers, homeowners, renters and businesses would share $103 million in a second round of Minnesota tax cuts after negotiators worked out a compromise that is expected to pass the Legislature next week.
Lawmakers from both parties hailed the agreement Thursday, saying that it is good to send part of the state budget surplus back to Minnesotans.
One tax negotiator compared the deal to checks Minnesotans received when Gov. Jesse Ventura was in office.
