Tensions are rising between Gov. Dayton and GOP leaders as Minnesota legislative session winds down
Just hours after DFL Gov. Mark Dayton and GOP legislative leaders shared breakfast Thursday, Dayton ripped into their priorities and threatened to veto budget measures if they include provisions related to abortion and other controversial social issues.
“It’s not going to happen,” the governor said.
House Speaker Kurt Daudt, R-Crown, said Dayton is being intransigent: “We need to see some compromise out of the governor. And we’re not seeing that right now.”
