Ward Says Time is Running Out
State Representative John Ward says the major pieces of legislative work remain ahead for state lawmakers, and they have only six session days to get it done.
The Brainerd DFLer says left undone so far are the bonding bill, tax bill and Vikings stadium bill.
The Republican sponsored tax bill would give a significant property tax cut to business. Ward says there is no mechanism to pay for that.
Representative Ward says it is important the Vikings stadium gets legislative approval this session to avoid the team moving to California. He says he will support any bill that does not use general revenue or legacy dollars.
