ST. PAUL -- Minnesota voters are beginning to tell politicians that they do not like a new law that some say could raise property taxes.

Few Minnesotans understood, or even knew about, the old market value credit law. Now, many are hearing that its elimination may raise their taxes and are beginning to complain about it.
