The Times’ dishonesty

The Times’ latest editorial reads more like DFL chanting points than an editorial that required original thought. Even the commenters noticed the Times’ dishonesty. What they noticed is that the Times said “As the final hours of the session ticked away, the House inserted into the omnibus tax bill a measure that gives about $32 […]

Highlighting the DFL’s misplaced priorities

Tim Pugmire’s article on the Senate Office Building highlights the DFL’s misplaced priorities and the DFL’s campaign year spin: A recent KSTP poll found the public disapproval of the building at 68 percent. The four Republicans trying to unseat Dayton are making it a campaign issue, and so are their allies. The group Americans for […]

In that post, I included Erin Murphy’s quote about the SOB: “We’re doing our due diligence,” said Murphy of her plans for the bill. Since the House Rules Committee hasn’t […]

Bakk playing hardball on Senate Office Building

Earlier this week, I spoke with a suburban legislator about whether the House Rules Committee would vote to prevent the building of the Senate Office Building. This legislator said that there’s virtually no chance the Rules Committee will vote to stop construction of Sen. Bakk’s Palace for Politicians, adding that Sen. Bakk is playing hardball […]

Opposition mounting against Senate Office Building

If this article is right, then we’re seeing the first signs that opposition to the Senate Office Building is mounting: Lawmakers in Minnesota had hoped to break ground in March on a $63 million new state Senate office building next to the state Capitol in St. Paul. But a fight has broken out over the […]
