Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
The Minnesota Supreme Court held that Governor Mark Dayton’s veto of all legislative funding was perfectly okay, because despite his attempt to de-fund a co-equal branch of government, the Legislature has set aside money to cover unforeseen contingencies. The Legislature’s fiscal responsibility rendered Dayton’s attempted coup irrelevant so we can just sweep his little faux pas under the rug.
I’m guessing next legislative session will be . . . contentious.
Given the confrontation-aversion the MNGOP showed in the 2017 session, I think Joe may be too optimistic.
