Top lawmakers to tour flood damage

Leaders of the Minnesota House and Senate are scheduled to be in Duluth tomorrow to get a first-hand look at some of the damage cause by last week’s flooding.

The bipartisan delegation will include House Speaker Kurt Zellers, Senate Majority Leader David Senjem, House Minority Leader Paul Thissen, and Senate Minority Leader Tom Bakk. State Transportation Commissioner Tom Sorel will also travel with the group, along with the House and Senate transportation committee chairs.

The legislators are scheduled to meet with Duluth City officials, St. Louis County officials and neighboring community leaders at 11:30 a.m. at the Duluth Public Safety Building.

Zellers and Senjem said last week that they would be open to a special legislative session to pass a package of disaster relief, if Gov. Mark Dayton decides to call one.
