The governor would like more parity between Minnesota’s higher education institutions in the bill. As it stands in the House, the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system would receive $145 million while the U would get only $54 million. Zellers said he’s working with Rep. Larry Howes, chairman of the House Capital Investment Committee, to reformat the bonding bill. He said its size likely would stay about the same.

Editorial Board: The D.C. Council’s deaf ear to noisy protests 4.5.2012 Washington Post: Editorials
WE WERE A BIT surprised to read that D.C. Council member Jack Evans (D-Ward 2) thinks the District needs better rules governing political demonstrations. It was Mr. Evans, after all, who pretty much threw up his hands and said nothing could be done to crack down on the offensive noise that has become the chief weapon of labor protests in this city.
