Senators Bakk and Simonson: Republicans jeopardize $800 million private investment in Duluth

If that’s not something legislators of all political stripes can get behind, after we made a far bigger investment in southern Minnesota five short years ago, then we declare our legislative process entirely broken and incapable of addressing the needs of all the people of Minnesota.
