Topics: “Minnesota Legislators on Funding Impasse” & “Toxic Tuesday was 25 Years Ago”

Description: Minnesota’s legislative session wrapped up a month ago, with several new laws going into effect July 1st. But there is still no resolution to Governor Dayton’s veto of legislative funding over a dispute with Republicans.

And 25-years ago today, a tanker car filled with benzene derailed into the Nemadji River, causing the largest mass-evacuation in U.S. history. We’ll revisit that eventful day with folks who were there.

Guests: Rep. Julie Sandstede, DFL-Hibbing; Rep. Dale Lueck, R-Aitkin; Rep. Liz Olson, DFL-Duluth; Pat Ryan, Douglas County board member; Scott Lyons, former Duluth Police Chief; Doug Nelson, Ham Radio Operator
