Rep. Jerry Dempsey, R-Red Wing, said budget targets announced by House Republican leadership do a good job of addressing some of the shortfalls in the governor's budget. No tax increase is proposed, but the House Republican plan increases spending for nursing homes and senior programs, and helps local governments by protecting more local government aid. "We make a few changes in spending priorities to help some of the most vulnerable Minnesotans." Dempsey said in a prepared statement.

ST. PAUL -- Minnesota drivers could be pulled over for not wearing seat belts under a bill that appears headed for the full Senate. "Law enforcement has better things to do than remove bodies of young children from cars," said Sen. Keith Langseth, DFL-Glyndon. The bill written by Sen. Steve Murphy, DFL-Red Wing, passed the Senate Transportation Committee 10-4, quite different than when the issue first arose 18 years ago. Committee Chairman Dean Johnson, DFL-Willmar, said the proposal at that time gained only two or three votes.
