The Minnesota Senate is expected to unveil its tax bill on Wednesday. At this point, we are cautiously optimistic that the bill will include the GMNP’s workforce housing tax credit proposal (SF 785, authored by Sen. Goggin), but we need you make an extra push!
Action — Legislators need to hear from YOU!
It is critical that GMNP members and their affiliates call or email Senate Tax Committee Chair Roger Chamberlain, Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka and your own senator by no later than this TUESDAY AFTERNOON and urge them to include the workforce housing tax credit in their tax bill. Let them know that:
- The workforce housing shortage is one of the biggest obstacles to economic growth in Greater Minnesota.
- The workforce housing tax credit (as described in SF 785) is needed to help jump-start the development and construction of middle-income housing in Greater Minnesota.
