4 Days To Shutdown, No Budget Deal In Minnesota
ST. PAUL (AP) – Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton and Republican legislative leaders will meet for more budget talks with only four days left to prevent a government shutdown.
Dayton and Republicans are scheduled to meet at 3 p.m. Monday at the Capitol. That’s a day after two and a half days of talks ended abruptly with no word of where things stood. All sides have been mum on whether they’re making progress toward a budget deal that would avert a shutdown starting Friday.
A Ramsey County judge is expected to rule this week on how a shutdown would be handled. She is weighing who has the legal authority to continue state services.
