Cottage Grove Rep. Kriesel invokes pop star Katy Perry during House fireworks debate
ST. PAUL -- Minnesota Rep. John Kriesel just wants to have a good time.
"Do you feel we are not as fun as other states?" the Cottage Grove Republican asked fellow representatives Tuesday before they delayed a vote allowing more powerful fireworks.
Then, quoting from a Katy Perry song, he added: "You just gotta ignite, the light, and let it shine."
A dozen other lawmakers also quoted from Perry's "Firework" as a gift to Kriesel, who is retiring from the Legislature.
