More than two dozen Democratic members of the Minnesota House are fasting in support of legislation that would put a moratorium of a year on farm mortgage foreclosures, a state representative said. The 72-hour fast started with 14 legislators Monday and grew quickly to 31 by Tuesday, said Rep. Pat Piper of Austin, sponsor of the moratorium proposal. They plan to fast until 2 p.m. Thursday, when Democrats will try a second time to pull the moratorium bill out of a banking committee.
