TOP 5toTHINGS you deserve know : government shutdown 2 1
Only Governor Dayton can prevent a shutdown.
He is the only one with the power to call a special session, allowing the Legislature to get back to work. So far, he’s refused.

Governor Dayton claims that his tax increase will only affect the “Top 2%.”

But in fact, a DEPARTMENT OF REVENUE study shows that his tax increase proposal will impact ALL INCOME EARNERS in the State of Minnesota.


According to the most recent budget poll released on June 20th…

87% of Minnesotans want state
spending to decrease or stay the same.


While, only

8% support

The Legislature completed their work & passed a balanced, responsible budget 6 weeks early…

an increase in state spending.

And made it publicly available for the Governor, his administration, DFL legislators and the citizens of Minnesota for review.


Republicans have made serious & honest compromises
to Governor Dayton on the budget, including:

*Offering the Governor 100% of his funding requests for Education. *Giving up $200 million in tax relief originally included in our budget offer.

Honorable Mention


On the campaign trail, Governor Dayton pledged NOT to shut
