Final Wishes Bill Vote

Senate Journal here:

Lisa Fobbe voted no. She is the new DFL state senator in the middle of the Bachmann triangle. It's more interesting that Senator Geoff Michel voted no. He had indicated he would be open to such votes when I talked to him. Senator Paul Koering crossed party lines and voted yes. Senator Steve Dille did not vote. The house vote will be very interesting.

The question was taken on the recommendation to pass S.F. No. 341.

The roll was called, and there were yeas 37 and nays 24, as follows:

Those who voted in the affirmative were:
Anderson

Eva,

It would be a giant mistake to ever rely on the word of Geoff Michel.
