Peacemakers seek legislative change this year
ST. PAUL -- Two quiet state representatives set lofty goal: Legislative peace in their time.
A political chasm has grown so deep in recent years that most lawmakers admit they looked bad the last two years.
In 2004, lawmakers left St. Paul with no major accomplishments. High-profile bills with broad support such as those getting tough on sex offenders and methamphetamine makers got lost in the political conflagration.
