Looking for anybody who knows about these things…I am a newbie.
It seems that the 1st two bills, most recently, got in front of the Transportation Finance & Policy Division Committee. That committee is chaired by Minneapolis Rep Frank Hornstein. But, they have been through a number of committees.
But, now they cant get into the Senate. Anybody know who to talk to? Is there someone in charge of the Senate? I think its the Majority leader. That would be this guy? Senator Paul E. Gazelka. Oh, shoot. He owns an insurance agency. Perhaps thats the hold up.
They have run out of time to discuss the third bill, but have promised to bring it back next year.
The first two bills have lots of bipartisan support, so our odds were good. Is the hold up just from that one guy? The insurance agency guy?
One problem seems to be that they schedule this stuff on the fly. There is rarely more than 12 hours notice that something is going to committee. Sometimes we only find out a couple hours in advance.
