Reinert Proposing "Purple Caucus" In Minnesota Senate

by

ST. PAUL, MN (KDAL) - Democratic Minnesota State Senator from Duluth, Roger Reinert, and Senator Jeremy Miller, a Republican from Winona are expected to announce the creation of a "Purple Caucus" this week.  The caucus is meant to unite legislators from across the aisle as Minnesotans first and Democrats and Republcians second.  Reinert says the name comes from the military when units of Navy blue and Army green branches would combine into a "Purple Unit" ignoring individual affiliation for the good of the mission.  Reinert says the "Purple Caucus" won't end all disagreements but it is hoped that legislative communications will be improved by making discussions more respectful and effective.
