From MPR News: Is the timing right to cut corporate taxes?
Gov. Tim Pawlenty is scheduled to release his two year budget proposal Tuesday. He has said that it won't raise taxes and that some of his proposed cuts will be "difficult." The plan will also include cuts in business taxes which Democrats argue will only increase the state's budget deficit. But to date, Pawlenty's tax cut plan is the only tax proposal on the table.
