The “Other Opinion: Voting” published in The Brainerd Dispatch on Tuesday, Feb. 8 was on the mark.
I agree with the West Central Tribune of Willmar that the proposed voter identification plan is an “expensive state mandate” and a “costly bad idea.”
In view of recurring efforts to reduce expenditures, I believe Minnesota legislators should refuse to waste time and money on a “solution looking for a problem.”
They should deal with problems in finance, education, health, infrastructure, and natural resources that urgently need solutions.
