Another Day, No Deal At Capitol To Avert Shutdown

Minnesota State CapitolST. PAUL (AP) – Governor Mark Dayton and Republican legislative leaders met briefly but did not reach a budget deal with a government shutdown now only four days away.

Dayton, House Speaker Kurt Zellers and Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch met privately for less than an hour Monday. Afterward the three appeared before the press together and say they’re still hopeful of a deal that could head off a July 1 shutdown.

Dayton and the GOP leaders say they’ll meet again Tuesday morning. All three agreed to not publicly share details of their budget talks.

Earlier Monday, Republican leaders held a news conference and demanded Dayton call a special session to pass some agreed-upon budget bills. But he reaffirmed he won’t do that until he and Republicans reach an agreement on the whole budget.
