Economy, criminal justice dominate session of Saskatchewan legislature

REGINA - The spring session of the Saskatchewan legislature has wrapped up much like the way it started - with talk of the economy.

REGINA - The spring session of the Saskatchewan legislature has wrapped up much like the way it started - with talk of the economy.

Premier Brad Wall says action taken during the 10 week session should help "keep the economic momentum going" in the province.

That includes a budget that boosted infrastructure spending and legislation to cut property taxes.

But it was the issue of convicted wife killer Colin Thatcher writing a book that brought about an unexpected piece of legislation during the session.

The government fast-tracked a law to stop criminals from profiting from the sale of their crime stories.

Wall says there will be a cabinet shuffle before summer, so some politicians returning to the assembly in the fall may have different jobs.
