In the Morning Take, we read:
TODAY: At 9:30, House GOP Speaker Kurt Daudt, Maj. Ldr. Joyce Peppin, Tax Committee Chair Greg Davids and Property Tax/Local Govt Chair Steve Drazkowski will hold a news conference to announce the House Republican Omnibus Tax Bill.
TODAY: At 10 AM, House DFL Leader Paul Thissen and Deputy Leaders will be joined by a teacher from Centennial High School, a server from Willmar, a MinnesotaCare enrollee from Fountain, and other Minnesotans who are being left behind by the Republican budget.
Here's The Uptake's archived livestreaming of both press conferences. Both pseudo-events should be must-see TV, but for different reasons. Bluestem rejoices at the chance to see both Joyce Peppin (R-Rogers) and Steve Drazkowski (R-Mazeppa), and the opportunity to watch Speaker Daudt take refuge in Tax Chair Greg Davids' abundant gravitas.
And the DFL response:
The bill is found here. We embed a review of the bill by non-partisan legislative staff.
