Minnesota's leaders say they're relieved the last legislative session is over. The session wrapped up a few days ago.

Governor Mark Dayton says their crowning achievement is keeping the Vikings in Minnesota. Beyond that, Dayton says with so much Republican resistance, it was difficult to get things done. His focus for the next session is making taxes fair.

Governor Mark Dayton – (D) Minnesota: "We are gonna reduce property taxes burden on businesses and everyone else, and ask the wealthiest people in Minnesota to pay their fair share of taxes, and that's something impossible to do with Republican majorities in the legislature."

Dayton other major focuses are job creation and education.
