Stand Your Ground bill passes Minnesota Senate
Your calls and emails made a difference. Tonight, the Minnesota Senate passed the Stand Your Ground bill with a vote of 40-23.
The bill will go to a conference committee on Monday, and should be back in front of the House and Senate soon. Following that, the next challenge will be convincing Governor Dayton to sign the bill. We’ll have more on that soon.
|Four DFLers lso voted for the bill. They are: Tom Saxhaug, Rod Skoe and David Tomassoni from northern Minnesota, and Dan Sparks from southern Minnesota.|
|Every Republican in the Senate voted for the bill…|
…except for Senator Geoff Michel (R-Edina).
