GOP Leaders Noncommittal On Possible Budget Bill Veto


MN GOP House and Senate leaders responded to the jobs bill by asserting that the bill was a “small but incomplete” step forward. 

On the budget bill, Representative Laura Brod ( R ), who did not vote for the bill, deftly sidestepped questions about whether she believes the Governor should veto it, but she did say that she thinks there should be a “comprehensive strategy” for solving the budget deficit, which today’s bill was not.

Senator David Senjem (R ) remarked that since the legislature has passed the bills, they’re now “locked”, and its left to the governor to unlock them if necessary. He added that the “Governor should consider the legislative process” when looking at this bill.
