Open Forum: Other Opinion was on the mark

Posted: February 11, 2011 - 7:06pm

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.
