Letter: Still time to reduce number of legislators
By Alan Cohrs, Westbrook
I saw in the Daily Globe that Rep. Bob Barrett has a bill to reduce the size of the Minnesota Legislature.
Former Gov. Jesse Ventura tried this, too, with no luck — lawmakers just don’t want to lose their jobs. But I think this should be done.
I think Texas had 181 in its Legislature and California 120. Why do we need 201? This move would give them all the room they would need.
