Minnesota House budget plan filled with tax cuts to be named later

Republican leaders in the Minnesota House released their budget targets on Tuesday, including $2 billion in unspecified tax relief. House Speaker Kurt Daudt said the principle of the budget targets is that state spending shouldn't grow faster than family budgets.

Daudt said GOP leadership hasn't chosen mix of tax cuts, but "sending checks back is something we're not considering." Minority Leader Paul Thissen called the Republican budget targets released Tuesday a "recipe for a government shutdown."

The GOP budget plan is a starting point for negotiations with Senate Democrats and Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton.
