ST. PAUL — Minnesota is doing better than most neighboring states, Gov. Mark Dayton said Wednesday.

And it is doing better than two years ago, he added.

“Minnesota’s job growth in 2012 was the 12th best among all 50 states; and we outperformed three of our four neighbors,” Dayton said during a 48-minute speech that was politely received by lawmakers. “Iowa ranked 30th best; South Dakota was 44th.”
