URGE Dayton to support Election Reform Bills on THE MERITS and not hamstring himself like Obama did.

OK, I LOVE MN NICE for the most part, but nothing NOTHING will get done with a DEM Majority and a DEM Govenor who decides to let the toddler party make the decisions.

What the toddlers want... and they've wanted it before .... is Voter ID.
So DEMS can make it easier to vote as long as Rethugs can still make it harder to vote.

Senate Democrats moved on an omnibus elections bill in committee this week without any Republican votes, even though Gov. Mark Dayton has maintained his pledge that election legislation must garner broad bipartisan support to secure his signature.

GO TO THE ABOVE url and click on omnibus elections bill to get the actual bill itself.

TWO of the basic components are also being worked on for a HOUSE Bill:

(House Rep Steve) Simon, who is still working to craft the House elections package, said that proposal would appear in the next few weeks. He isnt sure exactly what it will look like yet.

The DFLer from Hopkins is also taking a different tack than his Senate counterpart by crafting both an omnibus proposal and passing each measure out of committee individually.

The House Elections Committee already has heard a no-excuse absentee voting bill and a straightforward early-voting measure has been introduced. Simon is optimistic that Democrats will move forward on some proposals.

I subscribe to the Phyllis Kahn theory of legislating, which is the best thing is to have your bills alive in as many places as possible, he said.
