MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The 2013 legislative session is underway in St. Paul, and lawmakers are spending their second day away from the Capitol for an annual conference that stresses bipartisan cooperation.

The “One Minnesota” conference being held Wednesday at the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey School of Government is an annual tradition dating to 2007. It’s open to all state lawmakers but closed to the public.

This year’s conference includes a discussion with former Vice President Walter Mondale and former Minnesota Congressman Gil Gutknecht. It also includes sessions on the budget, taxes and jobs; funding of the K-12 education system; health care policy; leadership; and other topics.
