Silly laws 

While I await Governor Pawlenty's last demonstration of his goalie skills, it's worth noting a couple minor irritating bills that we've discussed before have gotten through to be laws.
In a number of cases, bills that were floated around alone ended up incorporated in omnibus bills; for example, freedom to poop ended up in the SF2089, the omnibus jobs and economic development bill that the governor vetoed. SF434, the cradle part of cradle-to-grave government care and advocacy of the nanny state, ended up in the first HHS bill. As time permits I'll check on some of the other silly bills we have discussed.
