(St. Paul, MN) -- Minnesota lawmakers are considering a GOP-backed tax relief package.

The 13-billion dollar Give It Back plan includes tax changes, a child tax credit, and five billion dollars in one-time rebate checks distributed from the state's surplus.

The plan would also reduce the two lowest tax tiers in the state by one-percent and adjust the homestead market value exclusion.

Republicans do however face an uphill battle to pass the plan with Democratic majorities in both the State House and Senate.
