South Washington County lawmakers say state of the state is improving
ST. PAUL - Legislators generally agreed with Gov. Mark Dayton that jobs are a key priority this year, although some hoped to hear more specific policy ideas from him during his Wednesday night State of the State speech.
"He talked a lot about job creation, and that is truly the reason ... all legislators are here," Sen. Ted Lillie, R-Lake Elmo, said.
Many lawmakers agreed with Dayton that while there still is work to be done, the state is headed in the right direction.
