Last night marked the last day of the 2011 Legislative Session in Minnesota.
This legislative session has been full of promoting bigotry and hate towards women and gays by passing bill after bill against abortions and also attempting to ban gay marriage through the state constitution.
The MN GOP also attempted to redistrict the state of Minnesota to solidify the conservative voting districts that have been close in votes the last few year, which would have affected 5 democratic disricts and only one republican district.
My state senator, Roger Reinert, said it best on Facebook:
It’s 10pm. There are 2 hours left in the 2011 Legislative Session. And the Minnesota Senate has been in for a total of two hours today.
Closing speeches are being made. It’s now official. The 2011 Legislative Session failed to do Job #1 – balance the state budget.
