2014 Minnesota Legislative Session Begins

Posted: Updated:

Minnesota lawmakers aren't wasting any time before diving into key topics in the brand-new session.

The Legislature convenes at noon today for a session that must wrap up by mid-May.

The House Tax Committee planned to start its discussion about taxes it might cut or repeal altogether given a state budget surplus.

Meanwhile, supporters of an increase of the state's minimum wage were hosting a big rally in the Rotunda.

The bonding bill, heating assistance and medical marijuana are all potential topics for the 2014 Minnesota Legislative session.

We'll have reaction from our local lawmakers and a preview of the bonding bill tonight on KEYC News 12 at six.
