Tax hike OK to environmentalists
ST. PAUL - Minnesotans will accept a tax increase to protect their natural resources, environmentalists rallying Wednesday in the Capitol said.
"The legacy that we leave for our future generations is the most important thing," John Doberstein of Duluth said.
Added Doberstein: Cleaning up the state's water - as required by federal law - is a public priority.
Duane Ninneman of Ortonville, who works in Montevideo, said clean energy also is a priority.
