As a candidate, Mark Dayton said he would not shut down government for a tax increase. Yet, while continuing to ask for tax increases, each passing week of Gov. Dayton’s shutdown unnecessarily keeps thousands of Minnesotans unemployed and costs taxpayers and businesses millions. Now, it is Gov. Dayton’s responsibility to call legislators back to work to pass either a short-term funding bill to continue operations or a complete two-year budget.
