< A Senate sweep | Main | Votetracker >

This week at the Capitol

It looks like the Senate is going to spend a generous amount of time on an omnibus transportation bill, but senators have the points so far today.

This morning the House Ways and Means Committee passed the medical marijuana bill on a 14-to-9 vote. I just updated Votetracker on the issue and you'll note this is not a party-line issue. That spells a great floor debate, when it gets to the floor.

The senators are getting the votes on this bill because SF345 has been substituted for the original House bill... HF655.

Vetoes R Us The governor will veto two more bills today. The government spending bill and the economic development bill will fall victim to le pen.

Listen to Tom Scheck's weekly chat with Cathy Wurzer for other stuff.

Update 5:10 p.m. The governor has signed SF372, that repeals the ticket scalping law. That's points for the teams that own Sens. Gerlach; Scheid; Johnson; Tomassoni; Metzen. (I'm guessing this was the bill that caused Minnetonka to pick up Johnson for a quick 50 points).

So the Senate version of medicinal marijuana bill didn't get rolled into the larger finace bill?
