Cities group proposes sales tax expansion
Extending the state sales tax to non-essential personal services and to digital downloads is the latest proposal to hold off deeper cuts in state aid to rural cities.
The Coalition of Greater Minnesota Cities wants to use the tax to provide about $60 million in annual revenue. The advocacy group for rural cities also wants the Legislature to prevent Gov. Tim Pawlenty from making more unallotments to Local Government Aid this year.
