Re: [InstantRunoffMN] SF629 introduced today
- IRV supporters:
An IRV bill drafted by Fairvote Minnesota will be introduced today in the
Senate. It is SF 629. You can click on the link below to go to the
Minnesota Legislature site to get more information. Or you can click on
groups.Yahoo.com to get a link to the bill and other IRV links as well.
Also on the Yahoogroups site: Files which contain more info on IRV and
T-shirt designs. Check it out!
We are hoping to have a hearing in the Senate. However, the House is a
greater challenge. We are working on getting House authors for the
companion to SF 629. The leader of the Government Operations Committee,
Jim Rhodes, does not want to deal with IRV this session and is offering
to have a hearing on IRV in the summer.
Our short term goal is to get language passed this year to guarantee that
any city that wants to adopt IRV can do so. Also, that any new voting
equipment purchased in Minnesota have IRV capability.
We may need help in the ensuing weeks. We will keep you posted.
