  •  Odd movement on this in MN (0+ / 0-)

    Minnesota state Rep. Scott Newman (R) has introduced a bill that would cut off state money to non-profits.

    What's Scott Newman got against non-profits?

    From the bill:

    1.5    Section 1. [16C.36] GRANTS TO NONPROFITS PROHIBITED IN CERTAIN
    1.6SITUATIONS.
    1.7No person, corporation, or entity doing business as a nonprofit entity shall receive
    1.8public funding to provide goods or services if the same or similar goods or services can be
    1.9provided by a state agency or a private for-profit business entity.

    Newman is a strange duck. He first refused to meet with anyone who voted against him. Then he refused to answer questions about his bill.  Now he's alluding to evil non-profits that are wasting state moneys but he won't name names. He's got a list, like that great Senator from WI.

    Thanks to Bluestem Prairie for being all over him on this.
