Schmit Bills

A pair of bills authored by Democratic State Senator Matt Schmit of Red Wing are being heard in the legislature this week.

One addresses the controversial driver's and traffic safety programs that were being held by several counties and cities across the state, including Wabasha and Goodhue Counties, which were halted.

Schmit says he wants to make sure the programs become legal before they resume.

Schmit is also proposing a bill to increase funding for broadband to be be extended to rural areas in the state that don't have the internet.

Both bills were scheduled for committee hearings Monday.
