Got to the Capitol, Friday afternoon around 1:30pm. Left the Minnesota State Capitol at 2:00am the next day. What a wild ride. The State Senate passed SF 73 (NOW HF 100) for the second, and FINAL time at 1:21 am, on Saturday 5/20/23, right down party lines, again. So now we send the bill to the desk of Gov. Timmy Walz for signature. We waited. We ate. We celebrated, very gingerly. We also met Steve, the clerk in the gallery who attempted to get a Hemp Bill passed in 1997. We'll save the best celebration for signing day. NUMBER 23.
