Legislative leaders to discuss possible special session with rank-and-file legislators
Top legislative leaders said Thursday they will confer with their caucus members to determine the agenda of a possible special session, following a meeting with Gov. Mark Dayton.
In recent weeks, the governor has called for a special legislative session that Dayton hopes will extend unemployment benefits to idled Iron Range miners. Several taconite mines have been temporarily shuttered amid turmoil on the global steel market, resulting in hundreds of layoffs.
