Legislature 1/10

Today at the Legislature the House celebrated Ed Burdick, while the Senate confirmed some of Pawlenty's appointed commissioners. Not a terribly eventful day in terms of getting things accomplished, and certainly not a surprising day. Nobody expected the Senate to fire any commissioners in the way that they fired Cheri Pierson-Yecke last year, and from what I can tell there is no reason to. The Senate will soon take up the confirmation of former Representative Alice Seagren as Education Commissioner, and despite the fact that she is a Republican there is no reason to deny her confirmation either. Yecke was right to be fired, and Seagren is a much more palatable choice.

Thursday's session will probably be even shorter, and since next Monday is a holiday and neither body will meet, expect little to be done in the near future.

What do you think of Paymar's bill in the House to cut down the numbers of state legislators? (H.F. 147)
