(Saint Paul, MN) -- A special working group continues wrangling with which front-line workers will share in 250-million dollars of COVID bonuses the Minnesota Legislature authorized.

Debate was postponed at Tuesday's meeting. Republican Senator Mary Kiffmeyer from Big Lake asked if those bonuses are taxable by state and federal law. State Revenue Commissioner Robert Doty responded bonuses potentially would be subject to "federal" tax and said maybe that's something the state legislature would deal with. Officials from Louisiana talked about their program during the meeting. They suggested Minnesota lawmakers consider a more sizeable bonus than the 250 dollars that the state provided for front-line workers.
