Representative Ryan Winkler (DFL-Golden Valley/ St. Louis Park) asks Republican members of the House what is their top priority. They tell him "jobs and the economy". Winkler asks why they won't agree to a rule that the House can't pass controversial constitutional amendments before it passes the budget. "You haven't passed the (budget)bills yet," says Winkler. He points out that while there are five conference committees meeting on the budget, there are six committees meeting on constitutional amendments for Voter Photo ID and banning gay marriage. He says this rule would not prevent those committees from meeting and "teeing up" the bill. The rule would only prevent the bill from coming to the House floor until the budget is passed.
