Letter about Senate

Fri, Jan 18th, 2013
Posted in Preston Letter to the Editor

To the Editor,

I have to share two proposals made within the last week by two senators of our MN Senate.

1. State Senator Ann Rest of NEW HOPE is asking for a sales tax on clothing.

2. Senate Majority Leader Tom Bakk wants to change the Minnesota Constitution. He wants three-fifths vote by legislative members before amendments can be forwarded onto a statewide ballot. At present it requires a simple majority without the governor’s signature. Our Minnesota Constitution has protected us in the past and it will work for the future.

I say leave our constitution alone Senator Majority Leader Bakk.

Do not put a sales tax on my clothing Senator Rest.

Both of these people are representing the Democratic Party. Readers, are they really representing you?
