Last weekend Monticello hosted the Republican State Central Committee Meeting.  Prior to this event news broke that Minnesota is sitting on another large surplus, this time projected to $1.87 billion.  So what do local Republican activists want done with the surplus?  Several said it should go back to the taxpayers, and pay down the debt.  Many suggested not having a bonding bill this year.

In our next video we explore what Chairman of the Republican Party Keith Downey thinks about this issue, as well as several local Republican leaders.
