All's quiet on the legislative front
ST. PAUL -- About the only people in the Minnesota Capitol today will be tourists and tour guides; there will be none of the hectic to-and-fro weekend activity that generally comes when two weeks remain in the legislative session.
Next week has to be different or little will be accomplished in 2006.
"We're kind of in crunch-time, guys," House Speaker Steve Sviggum, R-Kenyon, said Friday. "We ought to be here negotiating today."
