Governor Ventura celebrates "outstanding" legislative results Governor Jesse Ventura today praised legislative leaders for "doing right by Minnesotans" in passing his initiatives, including the largest tax cut in state history. "The people of Minnesota can be proud of what we accomplished this legislative session." Governor Ventura said. "All taxpayers, especial- ly middle income, are going to get a race break, and every taxpayer can also look forward to a good sized check toward the end of the summer, as part of the sales tax rebate I promised Minnesotans. And the set- tle-up mechanism means we'll keep getting money back, as long as it's there." The governor was also particularly pleased with fundings for light rail as well as the $751 million overall increase for public education. "Light rail is a fantastic invest- ment, because congestion is only going to get worse," the governor said. "As for education, we set out to reduce class sizes in K-3, and it's going to happen. We doubled that funding and also added money for other important education initiatives." Governor Ventura's tobacco endowments will also have a positive Big Stone County Precipitation Data Charles Hanson Farm on Artichoke Lake Updated by John Cunningham May 13, 1999 effect on nearly every Minnesotan. Sixty-one percent of the $968 million will go to prevention and public health, with the rest for medical edu- cation and research. "And we can't forget technology," the governor said. "The legislative leadership's investment in technology will ultimately provide more efficient services for Minnesotans. Overall, I couldn't be happier with the results of the session. Wc did pretty much everything we set out to do, and the people of Minnesota came out the big winners."
