MamaBear, if you would look up the current proposed bonding bill, which this session was to be, you should note the bill is in two parts - $875million which is bond funded and $125 million paid in cash for a total of $1Billion. That $125 million is coming out of the tax surplus which you and many others contributed to the surplus. Why don't they give the amount back to you and the many others so you could buy new appliances, a new car, or new furniture helping the local merchants but they would rather give it to their union friends.

MamaBear, I would have to agree with you but you should note they are in the minority the last session and the current session. Most of what you are posting about was a frenzy which I don't think you have thought thru. Every time a team from another city plays in the stadiums that were built, pay MN tax on the salary they earn while playing here. That totals up to a hefty amount each year. Andrew Falk would love to have windmills located on every person's lawn to generate their own electricity. As far as the office building, you can thank the Senator Bakk, the building union's friend, for slipping that in the tax bill last year excluding it from the capital funding bill. With one party rule, it is easy to put everything in an Omnibus Tax and Spending Bill which contain good items and bad items forcing a vote many of our disagreeing legislators have to hold their nose to do so.

Disappointed & Confused.Thank Julie Rosen the Windmill Queen. Thank Rod Hamilton. It is no mystery that after voting at the poles the elected forgot all about you.They decided stadiums and new digs at the capital were more important (to them) than roads in their districts.They also think it's alright that you pay more for electricity. They have forgotten who you are and where they came from.
