Pawlenty vetoes tax increase
ST. PAUL - Gov. Tim Pawlenty wasted little time before vetoing a nearly $1 billion tax increase early this morning.
The Minnesota House and Senate late Friday passed the tax plan, an alternative to larger tax-raising proposals on the table.
The plan would have created a new, fourth income tax bracket for the wealthiest Minnesotans. It also included an alcohol tax increase and a surtax on credit card companies charging customers more than 15 percent interest.
