Construction highlights start of Minnesota Legislature
ST. PAUL -- Construction workers in hardhats roved around the Minnesota House chamber Tuesday morning, less than an hour before the 2016 session began, conducting last-minute checks on microphones and voting buttons.
It was a sign of a House meeting in a construction zone this year.
The Rev. Richard Buller of Valley Community Presbyterian Church in Golden Valley offered the opening prayer, urging God to give representatives "a big dose of patience."
