but this is a bad idea. Can't have the fox guarding the henhouse and that is what this amounts too. A giant step backwards for Minnesota. But of course, this is a suck up to the Republicans who own the businesses who don't want any regulations, Democrats too who would make money on the backs of us all. Wait and see, this won't add a job unless you count the people who will be needed to fix the damage down the road.

Really, Joe? So the Democrats make money off of us all? What about the evil Republicans? Geez. Lay of the smoky smoky, mmk?

I don't like Dayton, but this bill sounds like good politics. Maybe there is hope they will come together and sing kumbaya and fix the budget...oops.

I think I might have inhaled.

Another moderate, sensible opportunity to come to the middle. In the details, if corporations screw this up......back to the drawing board. Time for common sense. Let's hope it happens.

There is hope! The Gov. has at least one brain cell which functions. Perhaps there is more, some where with-in the cavity.

I am plain sick of people who get voted in only to be paid off!! I have seen some of Ingebretsens bills, that he has voted on, and he is not working for the people of Minnesota...their values or their morals!!

Minnesotaborn, Just exactly which of the fine Senators bills are you sick of?
S.F. 102, which increases the sentence for 1st. degree sexual conduct. Possibly S.F. 175 which would make American English the offficial language.
Ingebrigtsen is the correct spelling of his last name. Had you actually told the truth of seeing some of the bills, you would have an idea of the correct spelling. The values and morals you refer must be way different in our lifetime home in Minnesota than yours.
