Sharp-eyed Minnesota Fantasy Legislature fans who thrive on handicapping legislation, no doubt have a new one to track: the stem cell issue. As MPR's Tom Scheck reports, the governor has roiled the stem-cell waters after appearing to defuse the issue when Mike Hatch tried to make it a campaign issue last fall.
If you can smell veto and override, you can smell points -- big points. Let's take a quick look at the prospects for the two bills...the Senate version from Sen. Dick Cohen and the House version from Rep. Phyllis Kahn.
First, the House Research Office is out with a research summary on the proposed legislation that provides plenty of information
Points are at stake in the House for Reps.Kahn; Hilty; Greiling; Hornstein; Bly; Tingelstad; Loeffler; Carlson; Hortman; Hausman; Paymar; Clark; Hilstrom; Simon. One of those authors, by the way is a free agent in both leagues (too bad there's no waiver draft this week, eh?).
Senate points are in play for Sens. Cohen; Sieben; Latz; Pogemiller. Sieben and Latz are free agents in the Gold League.
300+ BF, BH, CP points
5 active players in triple digits; 3 over 300; 1 over 400
3 active players in the top 20 power ranking
Drafts? We don't got no drafts! We don't have to show you no drafts! WE DON'T NEED NO STEENKIN' DRAFTS!
