‘Unsession’ kicks off

Minnesota State Capitol

ST. PAUL, Minn. — The legislative session getting underway in Minnesota is being coined the “unsession.” It means that leaders will be “undoing” some of the changes they made last year.

Some things that could be getting changed include the business-to-business tax that is impacting warehouses and farmers among others.

Local leaders want some changes to things impacting us in our area.

“The one that affects foreign oil, the operations and thus has a great impact on IBM, is also one that we’d like to undo and make life a little easier and frankly more friendly for IBM in Minnesota,” said State Sen. David Senjem, R-Rochester.

Governor Mark Dayton’s goal in this so-called “unsession” is to refresh outdated state laws instead of creating new ones. He has been busy getting ideas to make the government better, faster and smoother.
