GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - Democratic leaders in the Minnesota Legislature say they're almost certain to grant Governor Mark Dayton's wish to raise income taxes on the state's top earners.
Dayton wants couples earning more than $250,000 and singles making more than $150,000 to pay more.
Democrats say the money would balance the budget and boost education funding.
KARE 11 Sunrise wanted to hear from both sides of the aisle's take on the new budget proposal, as well as other issues making headlines at the state capitol.
Republican Senator Minority Leader David Hann and DFL Senator Ron Latz came on the show to talk about how the legislature plans to move forward.
