Lawmakers Back In Session

Minnesota Lawmakers go back in session on Tuesday. Bemidji Legislator Frank Moe said the work ahead includes balancing the budget. Moe said the state is on track to spend $935-Million more than it expects to collect in taxes by the end of 2009. Moe believes the budget can be balanced without raising taxes any more. Park Rapids Legislator Brita Sailer said passing the Transportation Package was an important part of the session so far. In addition to fixing roads and bridges, the package includes money for transit and adding busses and public transportation routes in Northern Minnesota. The session begins at noon on Tuesday.
