Petition to Reject All New Tax Increases
To Governor Walz and legislators:
Whereas, politicians in St Paul are proposing billions of dollars in new gas and sales taxes, and;
Whereas, the state of Minnesota has a $83 billion biennial budget, posing a major burden on Minnesota's taxpayers and private sector, and;
Whereas, the state of Minnesota diverts 40% of the motor vehicle sales tax away from roads and bridges, draining over $600 million from every budget that could be used for highway funding, needed bridge maintenance, or to reduce the burden on Minnesota taxpayers, and;
Whereas, the state of Minnesota currently has a projected $1.5 billion budget surplus, indicating the state already collects too much in taxes from the taxpayers;
THEREFORE be it resolved, We The People of Minnesota demand you oppose and vote against any and all increases to the gas tax, sales tax, or any other tax or fee, and;
Be it further resolved, We The People of Minnesota demand recorded roll call votes on all motions and bills that include a tax or fee increases.
