House Considers A Special Session Bill

The Minnesota House will consider a bill that would allow lawmakers to call a special session if they felt like it. Walker Representative Larry Howes thinks its a bad idea. Howes said lawmakers set the agenda for a special session under current rules and the governor decides whether or not to call the session. Howes said allowing one branch of government to do both would tip the balance of state government in a less than positive way. Representative Howes believes that any governor would veto such a proposition. Some lawmakers called for a number of special sessions last year after Governor Pawlenty vetoed a number of bills.
