Contents: There are thousands of people that do a great job for this state. To put ourselves above them would be a grievous error.

But St. Louis County Democrat Joseph Treadway says there's nothing wrong the commission's report.

OutCue: "the report"
Contents: The commission's report is legitimate and I see nothing wrong with that report.

The bill is now in the Senate. Senators have until midnight tonight to approve or reject the measure.
