    Episode 146- They're All The Same

    Episode 146- They're All The Same

    Public school districts will often have an official group called a Legislative Action Coalition (LAC). They are a lobbying group that is supposed to be made up from people in the community. When you read their platform, however, you begin to question whether that's true.

    In the Local Lowdown, we follow up on Beltrami county who decided to opt out of having mass refugee settlements. House Majority Leader Ryan Winkler threatened to pull state funding if they don't change their minds.

    Episode 145- I Choo Choo Choose You

    Refugees have been getting placed here into tightly cloistered settlements in MN counties. President Trump signed Executive Order 13888 to give counties a choice as to whether they want to be part of the federal program to resettle refugees in their area. These counties are all upset that they are being given a choice.

    Episode 144- It's A Spending Spree

    While our "leaders" in Washington D.C. are distracting us with this Soviet-like show trial of an impeachment, they all passed a $1.4 trillion spending bill. There will be local impacts because of the unconstitutional overreach of both our Democrat-led House of Representatives and our Republican-led Senate. This bill was released and passed in the House under the cover of night and under the cover of impeachment. The Senate passed it a day later without any discussion. All of Washington is out of control.

    Episode 143- Zero Emissions... Zero Fun

    Governor Walz just signed an executive order to recommit MN to tackle climate change. We are not hitting our goals in regulating emissions, so we've got to become even stricter. The Minnesota Environmental Quality Board is trying to regulate everything we do. Our private property rights are being chipped away, and sometimes being downright bulldozed over.

    In the Local Lowdown, St. Cloud State is dropping it's football and golf to comply with Title IX. Apparently there are too many opportunities for men.

    Episode 142- We're Borrowing Trouble

    Have you ever wondered how all of these local politicians can call themselves "fiscal conservatives"? They are willing to rack up debt for all of these projects. You won't see all of their spending on your annual property tax statement. You have to go near the end of the lengthy CAFR to find where they bury all of this spending. It is time for a culture change in how we approach debt. 

    In the Local Lowdown, residents are upset because Rochester wants to make a popular street a complete street.

    Episode 141- Main Street USA

    We always say that what goes on here is happening everywhere. We take a look at South Bend, Indiana. No one is talking about Mayor Pete Buttigieg's job in the Midwestern town, so we will.

    In the Local Lowdown, some idiot physically assaulted an educational assistant at Robbinsdale Armstrong high school, while some "hero" broadcast it on social media. It was his first day back from suspension... for fighting. Speaking of which, unruly teens brought about the end of New Hope's Duk Duk Days for good.
