Don and Earl have recently developed land near the Big Stone City ball field, where two new houses, owned by Patti Holtquist and Sue Christensen, are now located. Lawma roug Smart investments in children are an investment in Minnesota's future That statement is the reason behind a just-released yearly report card on state lawmakers from the Children's Defense Fund Action Council. Votes on five pieces of Minnesota child- focused legislation - relating to poverty, health coverage and juvenile justice - were tallied, and each legis- lator was given a grade based ,on the votes he or she made. Following the political process to see exactly how lawmakers vote can be difficult, according to Jim Koppel with Children's Defense Fund Minnesota. "This report card is an attempt to say to politicians, 'We're watching; we expect you to take better care of our children; we expect you to give a priority to Issues that impact chil- dren. And we'll report how you vote so that the public can see this.'" Forty-four of 67 Minnesota sena- tors received a score of 100 percent, and only one senator received a 0- lens percent score. In the Minnesota House. 67 representatives received a 100-percent score and 13 received a score of zero percent. Koppel contends that society is responsible for ensuring that chil- dren's basic needs are being met "Children don't vote. they don't advocate for themselves, so adults need to advocate for them. But we have too many adults who are not child-focused, do not see the future through the eyes of children or see how their actions impact children." He hopes the report card spurs public action. 'We want the public to respond to this and ask. 'Why do we have so many legislators who don't make chil- dren a priority?'" Koppel adds that the scores are not an endorsement of, or an opposition to, any lawmaker, but are simply a record of how they voted.
