Tim Pawlenty and the GOP legislators who backed up his cut to the Renter’s Credit thought they were off the hook. They were hoping that the many months passing between their cuts and your lighter wallet might make you forget who was responsible.
But they were wrong. Already, hundreds of Minnesotans — including you — have stood up and called for the Renter’s Credit to be fully restored.
With the start of the legislative session just around the corner, we have an important opportunity to reach out to our elected officials and make sure our voice is heard.
