Descendants of U.S. slaves should have their own nation says the leader of SIMBA because anything less is still slavery.
A group of Minnesota lawmakers working on how to assist businesses around Mille Lacs Lake abruptly adjourns on Thursday with it’s chair Rep. Tom Hackbarth (R) saying there is no need for a special session. Governor Mark Dayton called the group’s action “disappointing” and accused the members of focusing on “problem avoidance, rather than business assistance.”
Dayton wanted the group to come up with a proposal to help the businesses because the Mille Lacs walleye fishing season had ended early. Hackbarth says it can be dealt with in a regular session.
Walleye fishing on Mille Lacs is a big tourism draw and Dayton and several other lawmakers are concerned some of the are businesses may not survive. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources ordered an end to the walleye fishing season when the lake’s limit had been reached for the season. The number of walleye in the lake has been steadily shrinking for years and fixing the problem will take some time.
