Bill seeks to prohibit Minnesota from buying Crystal sugar until lockout over
Ten Democratic-Farmer-Labor House members introduced a bill Thursday to forbid the state from sugar from American Crystal until the firm ends a lockout that's lasted more than seven months.
The bill was introduced just before today's deadline for a bill to pass its first committee, so it has little chance of getting a hearing. Its prime sponsor is Rep. Rick Hansen, DFL-South St. Paul.
