House Speaker Melissa Hortman and Senate Majority Leader Kari Dziedzic held a news conference to lay out the priorities of the DFL majority.

Minnesota Democrats rolled out a familiar set of top priorities Wednesday - tackling climate change, affordable housing and child care. Creating a paid family and medical leave program. Expanding voting access and ensuring abortion access.

And for the first time in nearly a decade, it's more than a wish list.

Newly in control of both the House and Senate, legislative Democrats held a joint news conference to show a united front on issues they've long pushed for but could now make a reality if they can keep their narrow majorities on the same page.
