ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – When Minnesota lawmakers return from a holiday recess, they’ll have a guest from Florida waiting to address them.

Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush plans a visit to the Capitol on Tuesday to talk about education measures he championed in his state during his two terms. He’s the brother of one former Republican president and son of another.

Republicans who control the Minnesota Legislature are pursuing several substantial changes to state school policy, including some that would alter teacher tenure and revise the way school progress is assessed.

Bush left office in 2007 and has ruled out a campaign for president next year.
