Special session to pick up where the Minnesota Legislature left off


Glen Stubbe – Star Tribune

The House floor was mostly empty on Sunday, the final day of the regular Minnesota legislative session, as votes were cast by a roll call vote.

Gov. Tim Walz and legislative leaders pledged Monday to forge ahead with negotiations over a billion-dollar public construction package in anticipation of a mid-June special session, hoping to break the partisan impasse that blocked a deal in the final days of regular business.

Lawmakers expect to return to the Capitol by June 12, the deadline for Walz to extend a peacetime state of emergency that has allowed him to shutter businesses and impose other restrictions to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Under state law, the governor must call legislators back if he renews the emergency.
