Lot of work left for special session

Wed 5-22-2019

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — As veteran Sen. Tom Bakk puts it, the 2019 regular session of the Minnesota ended with a whimper.

It also ended with no firm word on how lawmakers will complete their unfinished bills to meet the goal of holding and completing a special session this week.

In the closing hours Monday night, the Legislature approved only one of the big budget bills that constitute the most important work of the session. By Tuesday afternoon, lawmakers were still waiting to hear from their leaders about the next steps.

When Gov. Tim Walz and the House and Senate majority leaders announced their $48 billion budget Sunday evening, they hoped that the details could be resolved in time for a one-day special session Thursday. That date still looked tentative by Tuesday.
