Minnesota House Committee Considers ‘Sticker’ Bill to Make Sure Voting Adults Are Rewarded Equally
Minnesota lawmakers have until May 22 to figure out things like healthcare relief, a one billion dollar infrastructure plan and public school funding. So I'm surprised they even have time to address trivial issues like this.
The little red "I Voted" stickers were created back in the early 1990s. Every election-day you see a ton of people wearing them, and posting selfies to social media with them on.

What do you think of the bills our legislators are currently considering? Are they on the right track with what's important to us as Minnesotans? Or do they need to focus on other areas of legislation?
