Both chambers are meeting today - the Senate at Noon, House at 12:30. The same schedule tomorrow, Wednesday, and oh yeah, there's a big protest at Noon at the entrance to the House demanding a hearing for the bill. This is crunch week, and if we don't get a hearing by Friday, the bill is done for this session. Isn't that just great? It's a non-election year, the DFL has 2 to 1 margins in both houses of the legislature but it's still not safe enough for the leadership to even give us a lousy hearing.
This all hinges on the actions of the Speaker of the House, Margaret Kelliher. She has the power to direct the Civil Justice Committee chair to hear the bill. Will she do it??? Please call her and encourage her to do so, today; 763-296-0171.
