Turning “Lawbreakers Into Good People” With A Bad 35E Law

Representative Mark Buesgens (R- Mankato) probably meant something different, but he states not once, but twice that keeping the speed limit at 45 mph along 35E south of downtown St. Paul will “turn lawbreakers into good people.” The author of the proposal, Representative Pat Garafalo (R-Apple Valley) steps in to clarify that it’s really the other way around.


Either way, the speed limit on 35E stays the same as the proposal is defeated 62 to 72, sparing the State of Minnesota a potentially very expensive lawsuit so Representative Garafalo can shave a few seconds off his commute from Apple Valley to the Capitol.
