Ready to get to work. Local legislators expect adjustments in session with lower surplus
BEMIDJI -- Local legislators are expecting to hit the ground running when the Minnesota Legislature reconvenes in St. Paul on Tuesday.
District 5A Rep. John Persell, DFL-Bemidji, said his calendar has already filled up for the opening week of the session.
"I don't know if I've ever had as full a schedule as the first couple weeks in a session," Persell said. "We're fired up with the committees and there will be a lot of people soliciting for bills, it's something shy of hectic. In the first week, I'm expecting a lot of bill introductions."
