One of the states where the legislature has spent recent years arguing about social issues, arguably to the detriment of other policies such as budgeting and government operations, is Minnesota.
So it was interesting to see this Pioneer Press article about how issues such as abortion and gay marriage are no longer on the agenda.
Governor Tim Pawlenty made no mention of such topics in his State of the State address, and no legislation has been filed yet about them either.
I wonder if this trend away from such topics is happening in other places. I know they've been arguing about abortion in Virginia, for instance.
