Minnesota knows how to do it

Posted by Zach Maurin on May 23, 2008

We recently got word of exciting news coming out of Minnesota from the Minnesota Conservation Corps.  It sounds almost definite that the state will eliminate the tax on the Segal Education Award given to AmeriCorps members after serving their term of service.  Senator Tom Bakk and Representative Tom Rukavina were the chief authors of this bill.  Nice work, fellas!

Eliminating the tax on the education award is gaining momentum in other states and on the federal level.  Last week, Senator Dodd announced his intention to eliminate it federally.  Watch his announcement here.

What other states are working on this?  Any success stories?  Let us know by leaving a comment.
