Other view: Here’s a way to save the legislative session

Other view: Bipartisan consensus on guns could thwart terrorists
Not to get your hopes up, but in the days after the massacre at a gay Orlando, Fla., nightclub, there were signs of an incipient bipartisan consensus on a measure that could head off future acts of domestic terrorism. Though the idea has been raised before, it may finally produce...

Other view: Choice of Tubman a nod to more of history
More Americans may gaze on the likeness of Andrew Jackson each day than on any other figure from U.S. history, in part because inflation has put more $20 bills into people’s hands than in the past and in part because that bill is the ATM standard. It’s the one that some people...

Other View: Minnesota can end last-minute lawmaking

Other View: Bonding, roads lead need for extra session

Other view: Support an LGA increase this year
Among all of its other priorities this session, the Minnesota Legislature can increase local government aid funding to cities across the state. Local government aid originated in the 1970s to help cities fund services for their residents. LGA not only helps cities provide much-needed...
