Minnesota’s unemployment rate fell another two-tenths of a percent in December, down to 5.7%.  Nearly 8,000 jobs were created in Minnesota during the month.

Dayton says, besides job growth, stream lining state government is another area he’d like state lawmakers to tackle this session.

The legislature convenes this Tuesday.
