Early End? Ewe Betcha

Sen. Steve Dille, R-Dassel, said he usually prepares his 200 ewes for lambing starting in mid-to-late May since the Legislative session usually runs to the constitutional deadline, which this year is May 17.

He wishes he would have prepared earlier this year. "It’s rare to have this much done at this point in the session."

With one-third of the budget deficit put to rest Monday, he thinks the Legislature could adjourn by the end of April.

"I think we’re in good shape," Dille said.
