The 91st session for the Minnesota Legislature convened today. Even though some of the same policy challenges persist for Minnesota, there are new dynamics, faces and leadership as the legislative session gets underway.
Yesterday, Governor Tim Walz and Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan were inaugurated alongside other state constitutional officers—attorney general, secretary of state and state auditor. Governor Mark Dayton served his last day as governor and is retiring after 40 years of public service.
