The U.S. Senate passed a new, five-year farm bill by a vote of 64-35. The House Agriculture Committee passed a new, five-year farm bill by a vote of 35-11. Both votes showed bipartisan supermajorities in favor. That suggests broad support among the American people for the overall...

Time for Vikings to deliver ultimatum
So how can it be that at Monday's House committee hearing, the first question asked of the Vikings' representative was this one by Rep. Dean Urdahl, R-Grove City: "Why should the state of Minnesota contribute to a stadium for a billionaire owner?" The answer should be obvious...

Partisanship puts DNR fund at risk
Think again. Instead, the increase may well fall victim to the poisonous political atmosphere in St. Paul. If that happens, then the Department of Natural Resources' Game and Fish Fund balance could drop to zero next year. So, when hunters in blaze orange and anglers on North...

Minnesota passed the buck to taxpayers
