House members told to play well with others

Posted by: under Minnesota legislature Updated: March 30, 2011 - 12:47 PM

 Barely eight hours after adjourning in the wee hours of Wednesday morning, 27 bleary-eyed members of the House were back at it during a committee meeting in which they were trying to move a pair of budget bills to the House floor.

As Ways and Means Committee members Tony Cornish, R-Good Thunder, and Bobby Joe Champion, DFL-Minneapolis, traded accusations that each other had "butchered " their statements,  committee chair Mary Liz Holberg, R-Lakeville, pointed out to them, "most of us in the room had very little sleep and that makes some of us very cranky."

They got the message. As the meeting wound down, Rep. Tom Rukavina, DFL-Virginia, told Holberg, "you don't look cranky at all."
