The Minnesota Senate had a 17-hour debate last week on legislation that would allow the unionization of home child care and personal care workers. Not to be outdone, the House then took its turn, beginning Sunday by debating for five hours, recessing, then taking it up again for another three hours. No vote was taken on the issue Sunday, partly because Republicans came up with more than 100 amendments to fight it. Despite strong opposition, the bill is headed for Gov. Mark Dayton's desk following more spirited House debate Monday.
