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.
