The cost of living and raising children in America has skyrocketed. The economic burdens of parenthood are pushing existing families to the brink. 


Minnesota families, that is to say parents raising minor children, are looking for fiscal relief but not in the form one one-time measures. They want and need something that they can rely on and factor into their budgets, at least for the next several years. At the same time, families don’t have much appetite for a tax rate cut that, while ongoing, would only add a few more dollars in each of their paycheck.
