Three Democratic lawmakers made a stop in St. Cloud today to talk about the end of the Legislative session and a special session that will be needed to approve a new state budget. Representative Larry Hosch of St. Joseph and Representative John Ward of Brainerd were joined by Assistant Senate Minority Leader Terri Bonoff of Minnetonka.
The argument over taxes and spending at Minnesota's Capitol this year spilled out in a contentious committee hearing as Democrats and their allies demanded higher state taxes to help fix a budget deficit while Republicans who want more spending cuts beat up on Gov. Mark Dayton's proposed income tax hike.
DFL members of the State House of Representatives will be in St Cloud on Sunday. Larry Hosch of St. Joseph and John Ward of Brainerd will be at St. Cloud State University's Atwood Memorial Center from 1:00 until 2:00 p.m. on Sunday.
