(NOTE: HOST BACK ANNOUNCE) Governor Jesse Ventura today (TUESDAY) criticized Senate Democrats for not passing a tax rebate bill this year -- despite an April 15th deadline for taking action. Appearing on M-P-R's Midday program, Ventura said the failure to act means the Senate will have to accept his proposal -- shared by the House -- which returns the entire current year surplus. But Senate leaders say they plan to remain at the bargaining table. Minnesota Public Radio's Michael Khoo reports.
