Minnesota State Constitution
LT. Gov. Yvonne Prettner Solon announced on Tuesday she will not seek re-election with Gov. Mark Dayton this fall. The former DFL state senator and Duluth city councilwoman said she considered her work on health care and seniors most rewarding during her term, but that she had “expected to be more involved in some policy initiatives and I found ways to do that.”
Minnesota voters voted on two major changes to their state constitution Tuesday, proposals to prohibit gay marriage and require photo identification for voting that sparked campaigns far more heated than usual for constitutional amendments.
