Ruud co-authors bill to promote tourism


State Sen. Carrie Ruud, R-Breezy Point, has co-authored a bill to dedicate existing motor vehicle rental tax money to Explore Minnesota Tourism.

The car rental tax was put into place in 1992 when Minneapolis hosted the Super Bowl. Currently motor vehicle rental tax money is deposited into the general fund; this proposal would return it to its original purpose of promoting tourism.
