WINONA, Minn. (WXOW) — The 2019 legislative session in Minnesota is complete.
Republican Senator Jeremy Miller is back in town after spending time at the capitol.
This session was a feeling out process where a significant amount of time was focused on building relationships.
While it can be tough to agree on most issues when the state is partisan, the session was ultimately successful.
“We certainly had our challenges here in the state of Minnesota but we were able to figure it out. What we did is we figured it out and we put the interest in the people before any party politics and we were successful here in Minnesota and I would say the same could be accomplished in Wisconsin,” Senator Miller said.
The story isn’t the same on the other side of the Mississippi as budget negotiations have been an issue in Wisconsin.
Just last night, Governor Evers’ state budget called for spending 2.5 billion dollars on building projects, but the Republicans on the finance committee erased Evers’ construction plan.
The back and forth between parties is making it hard for any problems to have a solution.
