DFL legislature to focus on budgets, taxes for 2013
ST. PAUL - Democrats will regain the majority in the Minnesota House and Senate and retain the governor's office in the 2013 legislative session, but they said Monday they don't plan to overreach.
"This is not going to be, as some fear and some hope, a sky's-the-limit approach," Gov. Mark Dayton said at a pre-session briefing for Minnesota reporters.
He said the focus should be on addressing the state's projected $1.1 billion budget deficit.
