Titles House Divided Oral History Project: Interview with Jim Casserly
Description Jim Casserly was a DFL member of the negotiation team. The negotiatons: When asked how the negotiating team arrived at negotiating positions, he responded, "With incredible difficulty." Casserly feels the DFL won the negotiations becasue they could be more effective on the committee level. He also feels that they could have been concluded before Christmas. Casserly goes on to say that initially Rod Searle had wanted to have some private sessions but Irv Anderson rejected the idea insisting tha all meetings be public. This created a situation, Casserly says, that suffocated the negotiating process with posturing on both sides. Casserly was happy with the aggreement up to a point, the point being Anderson's name being written into the document.
