The legislative session starts in January in St. Paul.
The DFL is now in charge of the Governor's office and the House while Republicans control the Senate.
KSTP's Leah McLean sat down with Governor-elect Tim Walz, Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka and House Speaker-elect Melissa Hortman to learn how they plan to cooperate.
It marked the first time the three had all met together.

Walz spoke a lot about listening to Minnesotans, even those who didn't vote for him.
"I'm looking forward to us being a team that can work together and that's how I view us - as one team for Minnesota," Walz said.
Hortman discussed a plan for some House committees to meet not just in St. Paul, but around the state. While Gazelka expressed his desire to start working on big priorities like tax reform and a supplemental spending bill early, so leaders don't take it down to the last minute and rush to finish their work.
