"There's just one problem with the state's historic tax credit program, which is officially known as the Minnesota Historic Structure Rehabilitation State Tax Credit: It's set to expire June 30.

Please, legislators: Don't allow this happen.

And not just because preservation helps communities tell their stories, or because preservation is ecologically smart. Currently, a coalition of interested parties is taking a savvy lobbying approach by packaging a renewal of the historic tax credit as a jobs bill. Which it is."
