House committee passes protest bill

A bill that would allow the government to sue demonstrators convicted of illegal protests to recover emergency services money passed the House Civil Law and Data Practices Policy committee.

Randy Furst of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Chants and shouting erupted after a House committee voted to pass a GOP-led measure that could make protesters financially liable if police must intervene.

Minnesota is joining a growing number of states looking to discourage large, disruptive protests.
