Since the bill raises the money over 10 years, that's actually 3%.
Okay, but it was the "biggest tax increase in Minnesota history," right? Well, possibly. I can't find that history book out here in Colorado, but I know that's the way history generally works. Stuff that happens later in history — especially where population growth is involved — is bigger than stuff that happened earlier.
But if we hadn't waited 2o years, it might not have been a tax increase at all.
Good work Charlie!
