Minnesota lawmakers face a shrinking pile of unfinished business as they sprint this week toward the end of the legislative session and the campaign season just beyond.
    
Some big votes still await: a construction finance package, more tax relief, medical marijuana and some new spending on priority programs. Other big pending items would rein in the state lottery, impose regulations on electronic cigarettes and ban tanning bed use by minors.
    
Lawmakers have seven days left to pass legislation. Many hope they'll need fewer.
    
Senate Majority Leader Tom Bakk says legislators are on pace to finish ahead of the May 19 deadline.
