St. Paul, MN (NNCNOW.com) - Minnesota lawmakers head back to the Capitol Tuesday to kickoff the start of the 2014 legislative session.

Lawmakers are expected to tackle a myriad of issues in what will be a relatively short session.

The biggest item on the agenda includes passing a bonding bill, which will help fund projects like the NorShor Theatre in downtown Duluth and other construction projects.

Lawmakers will also pick up where they off last session with the minimum wage bill.

Both sides agree there needs to be an increase. At question is how much the increase should be,

A push to make the state's anti-bullying laws is also a priority this session along with repealing several business to business taxes.

The session is expected to last about 12 weeks.
