Legislative Update From
Representative Marty Seifert

Wednesday, I was pleased to listen to Governor Pawlenty's State of the State Address in the House Chambers. There were many positive points in helping Minnesota move forward. Certainly, no legislator is going to agree with everything in a Governor's address, but I thought it was mostly an uplifting message. You can look at the speech by going to the Governor's website at www.governor.state.mn.us  Executive Budge Outlined Tomorrow, the Governor will outline his budget recommendations to the legislature. As the House Minority Leader, I do get briefed before the public and other legislators, but cannot let anyone know until the press conference later. Undoubtedly, the Governor's website will have information and spreadsheets available this week.

First Bill Stalled in State Senate While the Minnesota House of Representatives acted swiftly in passing the federal tax conformity bill almost two weeks ago, I'm disappointed that the State Senate has bogged down and pulled the bill from consideration. If not passed this week, it may mean hundreds of thousands of Minnesota taxpayers having to file amended returns later in the year. This is very, very sad and I hope that it can be brought up and passed this week. In order to view Senate bills and schedules, you can go to this site: http://www.senate.mn/  Congratulations I'd like to extend congratulations to Marilyn Bernhardson, who was recently appointed to the Clean Water Council by Governor Pawlenty. Marilyn is the District Administrator for the Redwood Soil and Water Conservation District. This group will help guide along the "Clean Water Legacy" initiative passed by the legislature last year.
