PRESS RELEASE

Minnesota Council of Nonprofits (MCN) Dismayed Senate Passed Tax Bill

Today, the Senate passed an irresponsible set of policies when they voted yes on their current tax proposal.

The Senate version of the bill still needs to be approved in the House of Representatives. It is a complicated piece of legislation, with many moving pieces which will lead to deeper cuts to health care and other critical services and weaken the nonprofit sector by reducing charitable giving. MCN is asking members of the House to slow-down so that everyone can fully understand the comprehensive effect of this legislation.

“We hope that after careful consideration and detailed study the House will say no to large tax cuts and benefits for the highest incomes and profitable business, at the expense of everyday Minnesotans and their families.” said Rebecca Lucero, Public Policy Director. “MCN opposes this bill as a whole because it fails to champion our values and missions. We will continue to work in partnership with government to cultivate strong, thriving, and joyful communities.”
