Minnesota Lawmakers Escape Capitol For Annual Retreat

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — For a day at least, Minnesota’s Capitol shifts west to Minneapolis.

The state Legislature planned to gather Wednesday at the University of Minnesota’s Humphrey Institute for a seminar focused on bipartisanship and the state budget. It’s the fifth annual “One Minnesota” event. The retreats are typically held soon after the Legislature opens its yearly session.

The event runs all day so Capitol committee action is put on hold to boost attendance by state lawmakers.

Speakers this year include Scott Pattison, the executive director of the National Association of State Budget Officials.
