On Friday, Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and leaders of all four legislative caucus leaders will have their first meeting since October.
The meeting will be Friday afternoon in the governor's state capitol office.
They'll have a lot to talk about -- a judge just decided that part of Pawlenty's solo budget move overstepped his authority, the state is facing another budget deficit and the next legislative session starts in less than a month.
Rep. Erik Paulsen called for an independent investigation into Russia's interference in the presidential election following President Trump's firing of FBI Director James Comey, going further than many GOP lawmakers in the aftermath of a move that has roiled the Capitol over the last day.
