Minnesota Legislature adjourns, with much of its work undone

Republican House Minority Leader Kurt Daudt came onto the House floor Monday to talk with other Republican legislators and House Speaker Melissa Hortman on the last regular day of the legislative session as they plot out what comes next with a special session certain.

The Minnesota Legislature adjourned on Monday with much of its work unfinished, a day after Gov. Tim Walz and legislative leaders struck a $48 billion deal on the state's next two-year budget.

Despite a tentative compromise that funds schools, parks, public health care and other services for the next two years, the DFL-controlled House and the GOP Senate majority proved unable to pass the bills that put the deal on paper before the constitutional deadline to adjourn Monday at midnight. The two sides were also still debating dozens of policy disagreements on contentious issues ranging from education and paid medical leave to abortion and guns.
