The Minnesota Legislature will have a shortened session, with lawmakers gathering in St. Paul in mid-February. Agricultural lobbyist Bruce Kleven says the 2020 election will influence the statewide elections. “I think we will have a big election year with Trump on the ballot and all the commotion going on nationally that will trickle down here,” said Kleven. “There is a possibility the Senate could turn this year and if that happens, it will put DFL control in all three bodies in 2021. One of the ways that will happen is with some of the policies that will come up this year.”
