Senator Marty and Rep. Jaros wanted some changes to the bill before it goes in. The new title is " The Marriage And Family Protection Act", (replacing "Religious Freedom" with "Marriage," Sen. Marty's idea) and both wanted to cut down on the number of legislative findings. Senator Marty reworked the bill over the weekend and read the changes to me over the phone while I was in the car traveling back from Duluth. I liked the changes. He cleared it with Rep. Jaros and sent it to the Revisor late yesterday so it should be introduced this week.
Gotta go now and protest in front of the Senate at 10:30.
