Major office swap at state Capitol as Republicans take the good spots

All those old red and green legislative handbooks are now out of date, as movers ply the halls of the state Capitol and the State Office Building during the big office shake-up.

With the new Republican majority in both the Senate and House, Senate GOP lawmakers now will be based in the Capitol building, moving over from the SOB, where they’d had their offices for decades. DFL senators are headed the other way across the street, out of the Capitol and into the SOB. Maybe some of them are taking the tunnel.

All House members have offices in the SOB, but now will switch floors; DFLers moving down from the more prestigious upper floors and the Republicans moving up the stairs.
