At the Capitol today, state Senators get an update on current economic conditions in Minnesota and the nation from the head of the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis. It’s important information for lawmakers in light of the reduced state budget surplus. There’s debate on a bill that would allow two-line angling in Minnesota, and on a measure that would impose at least a hundred-dollar fine on drivers traveling in the left lane at less than the speed of traffic. There’s a push at the Capitol today for steps to reduce the price of insulin. A House panel debates a bill that would decriminalize sale or possession of CBD oil derived from industrial hemp. And a Senate committee debates a bill that would freeze tuition at the U-of-M and at state universities for the next two academic years, and reduce tuition one percent next academic year at state colleges.
