ST. PAUL (AP) — Top GOP lawmakers are revealing their plans to boost Minnesota’s job market, their top priority this year.

Senate and House Republicans are slated to unveil their proposals in separate news conferences on Monday.

Republicans took over both chambers of the Legislature last week, vowing to spur job creation and improve Minnesota’s business climate. Unemployment is 7.1 percent.

The Senate bill from Sen. Geoff Michel would cut business taxes and simplify permitting and environmental review processes.

House Speaker Kurt Zellers and others are slated to outline two bills focused on jobs and the budget at an afternoon news conference.
