The 2012 legislative session kicks off today. Legislators are back at the Capitol for what's expected to be a short session. But some big topics are expected to be discussed. Those include a possible new Vikings stadium, a slew of constitutional amendments, and contentious redistricting plans. Yesterday on the program we heard from House Speaker Kurt Zellers about Republican priorities for the session.
MPR's Cathy Wurzer spoke with House Minority Leader Rep. Paul Thissen about DFL priorities.
