House Republicans to unveil revised transportation plan

Transportation returns to the spotlight Monday at the Capitol when House Republicans unveil their latest funding proposal for roads and bridges.

Their no-tax approach contrasts sharply with DFL Gov. Mark Dayton's plan and sets up some difficult negotiations in the weeks ahead.

We'll also find out in the coming days about the overall tax and spending goals that House Republicans and Senate Democrats have in mind for the session, and there's a vote coming to change the minimum wage law.

MPR's Cathy Wurzer spoke with Minnesota Public Radio News reporter Tim Pugmire, who covers the state Capitol.
