Minnesota Lawmakers Back In Session

The 2008 Minnesota Legislative Session resumes once again. Brainerd Lawmaker John Ward said there are still lots of issues he wants to talk about like education, healthcare and property taxes. Ward said at the top of his list is the bonding bill and he believes lawmakers will produce a final version soon. Both House and Senate have approved final bills but now the conference committee will iron out differences. Royalton Lawmaker Al Doty said he expects a final bonding bill soon but he also expects to work on balancing the budget. Lawmakers have to reduce spending for this two-year budget cycle by $935-Million.
