Minnesota Legislature gets ugly, loud
ST. PAUL - If Tuesday paints a picture of how the 2009 legislative session will end, it won't be pretty.
An exchange between legislative leaders and a key Pawlenty administration official Tuesday morning was as tense of an exchange as seen in the Capitol this year. And things got worse a few hours later in the House chamber.
Republicans shouted down the Democratic speaker when she ruled that time had expired on a transportation debate, with two GOP amendments not yet heard.
