Keith Franke, Breaks His Constitutional Oath with Yes Vote on 28 out of 31 Multi Subject Bills

MSBs or Multi Subject Bills are a direct violation of Minnesota State Constitution Article 4, Sections 8 and 17. The Constitution clearly states that one bill should not have more than one subject.

MSBs are the primary source for every increasing state debt. Stand alone bills that would not pass on their own, are swept into massive MSB bills, many in the final days of a legislative session when few if any of these bills are read…let alone reviewed with any scrutiny. Last Session one of these bills was $1.5 billion dollars, only 7 republicans voted against this bill (none from Washington County).

The following is a list of MSBs bills from the 2017 legislative session. Keith Franke violated his oath no fewer than 28 times on 31 bills.

1. SF1 Yes
2. SF1549 Yes
3. SF 605 Yes

Keith Franke has proven his inability to honor his oath.

Keith Franke is not deserving of your vote for re-election.

Now is the time to get serious about electing representatives that will honor their oaths and adhere to the founding principle of a Constitutional limited government.
