Pariseau wraps up final session at the capitol
Pat Pariseau's final session as a Minnesota Senator ended with a flurry of activity and some sleepless nights.
Pariseau, the Farmington resident who is retiring after 21 years in the Senate, went most of last weekend without sleep as legislators wrapped up their business. But she said she rarely felt tired. She went from the capitol to church Sunday morning without so much as a stop at home to freshen up.
