Legislature What Happened [Duplicate]

FILE - In this May 15, 2014 file photo, Rep. Rod Hamilton hugs House bill author Rep. Carly Melin during a news conference in St. Paul, Minn. Democrats who control the Minnesota Legislature can brag about key accomplishments in the just-completed session, including a big boost in the minimum wage and a tougher statewide anti-bullying law. But they needed and got help from Republicans to push through $1.1 billion in spending on construction projects, major tax relief and legalized medical marijuana.
