Howes Says it's a Rocky Start to the Session

The session of the MN Legislature is less than a week old and it has already turned contentious. 

The MN Senate opened by cutting staffing dollars for DFL lawmakers, followed by the rejection of Governor Dayton's appointment of former DFL State Senator Ellen Anderson as chairman of the Public Utilities commission. 

State Representative Larry Howes of Walker tells KLKS News it was payback for when the DFL controlled the senate and rejected some of Republican Governor Tim Pawlenty's appointments.

Representative Howes expects the proposed constitutional amendment on voter I.D. will pass the house this year, but three other proposed amendments will not.
