New House rule leaves voters out in cold


Most Minnesotans are probably unaware of a new DFL Minnesota House rule that limits their input into the lawmaking process and restricts representatives’ ability to function effectively.

New bills are introduced and then heard in appropriate committees where a small number of legislators come in contact with them and have opportunity to make changes. Intense scrutiny occurs only when a bill moves out of committee and onto the House floor where all members are present.
