why make anamendment to empower an "Independent Panel" to decide on increasing wages for the legislature? Instead, whenever they "think" the deserve a raise, make your case to the voters and put it on the ballot for the whole populace to decide, with the caveat that 60% of the voters must vote "in favor" of the raise, none of that BS that, if you don't vote, it will be considered a yes or no. 60% must vote in favor of the proposed raise. I'd bet we would see a harder working government that would be a lot more fiscally concerned about the whole of MN.

They neglected to include the $30 million loan forgiving they did for Minneapolis' DT library. They snuck that one in under the radar hoping no one would notice. What a bunch of crooks.

No mention of the $37 million for the Southwest Corridor. This will keep the 3rd light rail line on track for completion.

Hating gay people was left off the agenda since the last election. Good always wins.
