WHAT MINNESOTANS WILL SEE
SMALLER TAX HIKES
County and city property tax levy increases capped at 3.9 percent a year for three years.
A NEW RAIL LINE
$70 million will be borrowed for the Central Corridor line, attracting $450 million in federal funds.
About 12,000 more Minnesotans will get health insurance, 7,000 through public programs.
A BIGGER MALL?
Taxes at the mall and a Bloomington lodging tax may fund a parking ramp for a $2 billion expansion.
Drained reserves, spending cuts and a closed corporate loophole erase a nearly billion-dollar deficit.
