Conservatives eye spending cap amendment
ST. PAUL -- Conservative Republicans hope enough Minnesotans are tired of high taxes that they will support a proposal to limit state spending.
It is a tall order, given the fact that Democrats control the state Legislature and most of them prefer raising taxes to help plug a budget deficit. But the chairman of the Senate Taxes Committee is ready to consider something to limit taxes, even if it is not the state constitutional amendment Gov. Tim Pawlenty proposed last month.
