House fair booth to feature lawmakers, poll

The Minnesota House of Representatives will ask state fairgoers to weigh in on several hot-button policy proposals.

Questions on this year’s non-scientific state fair poll include the definition of marriage, expanded gambling, funding for preschool education, sales tax on clothes and voter ID.
