ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP)— Legislators are leaving the Capitol to learn lessons on working together.

 

State lawmakers are invited Wednesday to the all-day One Minnesota conference at the University of Minnesota. They’ll attend workshops on bipartisan collaboration on a number of hot issue areas, including growing jobs, higher education and taxes.

 

Caucus leaders from both houses will moderate discussions among experts on everything from accountability to conflict resolution.

 

The annual program may serve as a launching point from which to reach across the aisle after the stormy open of session Tuesday. As senators called on one another to come together as a family, Republicans in the Senate Rules Committee pushed through deep cuts to the DFL staff budget.
