Every last one of them is up for election

After two failed legislative sessions in which very little was done the Minnesota Legislative session is almost upon us this year. Of course this year is much different as it is an election year. It's a bonding year which means the focus will be to bring home the pork and go home.

I think the Minnesota voters will be smart enough to call them on that one. If the last two years were worth fighting every step of the way over, then this year should be no different.

As always the stadium issue is still here, and since this might be Governor Pawlentys last year in office we might see some meaningful action on the legislation, but I wouldn't bet on it. The Governor was always against the stadium and probably doesn't like the prospects of running for relection after making a decision on that dividing issue.

When it happens come back here for the Pork Report
