Gov. Mark Dayton will share his vision for Minnesota for 2017 during his annual State of the State address Monday night.
The Democrat will deliver the speech to a joint meeting of the state legislature at the Capitol at 7 p.m.
He's expected to stress the importance of passing a health insurance relief bill quickly (the Republican-controlled House and Senate have passed different bills, and Dayton isn't too keen on some of the ideas in them), the Duluth News Tribune says.
Dayton will also likely preview his budget, which will be officially released Tuesday.
Passing a two-year budget (this year there's a projected $1.4 billion surplus) is one of the most important things on the lawmakers' to-do list this session, because if they don't agree on one it could send the government into a shutdown.
With a Democrat as governor and Republicans controlling the House and Senate, it could be a little tricky because both sides will likely clash on how to spend the state's money, like they have in the past.
Republicans haven't said much about their spending proposals for this year.
