ST. PAUL -- Income tax returns Minnesotans file this spring will conform to new federal laws if state senators follow the House's Monday action.


The House voted 127-0 to change state law to match newly enacted federal tax legislation, saving taxes for 55,000 teachers, 90,000 homeowners, 60,000 students and 32,000 small business owners. Supporters say it will save Minnesotans $18.5 million.
