Deal Reached for $167 Million in Flood Relief
ST. PAUL (AP) - Minnesota lawmakers have agreed on a relief package for northern Minnesota communities hit hard by flash-flooding in June.
The package is for $167 million.
Gov. Mark Dayton had originally proposed $190 million in relief, but Republicans had balked at that figure as too high.
The deal announced Wednesday will be taken in a special session of the Legislature on Friday afternoon.
