Lots of topics, little time for 2016 Legislature
ST. PAUL — Transportation. Taxes. Public works projects. Education. Water quality.
That is merely the beginning of the list of topics Minnesota lawmakers want to consider when they return to session Tuesday. It is not a much different list than other years, but the time to accomplish anything is limited, mostly because of a $304 million Capitol renovation that has closed everything but the House chamber, one elevator and hallways allowing people to get to the chamber.
Senators are meeting in a committee room converted into a temporary chamber.
