Letter: Hamilton voted for his party, not his constituents
I thought my state representative, once elected, was supposed to set aside party politics and fight for the interests of his constituents, their families and their communities. Instead, I watched Rep. Rod Hamilton ride shotgun as Governor Pawlenty cut apart the state budget and put...

Letter: Reader troubled by Hamilton's assertions
In his letter published in the May 12 edition of the Daily Globe, Rep. Rod Hamilton offered no solutions to the state's budget crisis, and didn't even pretend to answer the questions raised in Mr. Larson's letter. In his letter, Norman Larson asked Rep. Hamilton to stop attacking...

Letter: Hamilton replies to critic
I'd like to thank Norman Larson for recognizing my displeasure with budget proposals brought forward by legislative leadership this year. One reason why he's not hearing about any solutions from me, or many of my colleagues, is because the House leadership isn't interested in them. A...

DFL advances tax bill
ST. PAUL -- Democrats were poised to finalize a $1 billion tax increase Friday night, an alternative to larger hikes the House and Senate already approved. And Gov. Tim Pawlenty was poised to immediately veto the measure, forcing budget talks to begin anew 10 days before the Legislature's...

Representatives Doug Magnus and Rod Hamilton have had several letters printed in the Daily Globe during this legislative session. Their letters criticized the governor's budget proposal and the House budget proposal. I don't recall them mentioning the Senate budget proposal, but given...

Letter: Hamilton's vote a win for disability services
Rep. Rod Hamilton cast a very important vote for our community Monday night that must be acknowledged. The House Health and Human Services Funding Bill had singled out people with disabilities and their caregivers for a disproportionate share of funding cuts. Rep. Rod Hamilton supported...

Letter: Hamilton disappointed in House Democrats
On a party-line vote, the Minnesota House of Representatives has approved a finance proposal that reduces funding for agriculture, veterans, and military needs across the state. All House Republicans opposed the measure because it does not fairly fund veterans, military affairs and...

Letter: Hamilton discusses option sales tax increase proposal
A House Democrat proposal that would encourage counties to impose a half-cent sales tax is questionable. The goal of the legislation is to give counties new revenues so they won't be forced into to imposing property higher taxes on residents. But there's nothing in this bill that...

Letter: Legislator seeks thoughts on budget
On March 13, DFL leaders in the Minnesota Senate unveiled their ideas to solve Minnesota's projected $6.393 billion budget deficit for Fiscal Years 2010-11. I'm glad that another budget proposal has finally been submitted. We've been talking about the governor's plan for weeks and...
