December 15, 2011

Saint Paul – Governor Mark Dayton released the following statement today:

“I personally regret Senator Koch’s decision to step down as Majority Leader of the Minnesota Senate and not to seek reelection.  I have developed great respect for her during the past year of working together.  She has been an excellent leader of her Caucus and, while we often disagree, a strong advocate for her beliefs.
