  • Educators, lawmakers eye changes that could give Minnesota teachers unions more say in bargaining

    Apr 7, 2023

    Minnesota school districts would have to negotiate with teachers unions over class sizes, staffing ratios and testing policies under proposals in consideration by the Legislature.

Such provisions are rare in labor agreements in the state. Class size was one of the issues that prompted Minneapolis teachers to strike last year, and an agreement over the issue helped avert a strike in St. Paul....

    Apr 7, 2023

    As Sheriff of Beltrami County, I was elected to enforce our laws and keep the public safe. With the Minnesota Legislature considering the legalization of recreational cannabis, my job may be changing substantially in the near future.

Currently, law enforcement lacks an instant, on-site test for cannabis intoxication, similar to a...
