ST. PAUL -- A Minnesota Senate committee will consider an $84,683.50 attorney bill dealing with a scandal that forced the former majority leader to resign.


The Senate Rules Committee will be asked Wednesday to approve the bill for attorneys hired to prepare for a former Senate worker's lawsuit that has yet to be filed. Michael Brodkorb has said he will file a federal gender discrimination lawsuit.
