Senate Majority Leader Tom Bakk
The Minnesota State Capitol is about to get a new neighbor for the first time in decades. Construction begins next year on a new, $89.5 million Senate Office Building located directly behind the Capitol.
Gov. Mark Dayton and Democratic legislative leaders call the just-finished session a success and that they accomplished what they set out to do. Dayton and the lawmakers held a Tuesday news conference at the Capitol, just a few hours after the session wrapped at midnight.
