House, Senate Meeting For Rare Saturday Sessions

Minnesota State CapitolST. PAUL  (AP) – The Minnesota House and Senate are meeting for rare Saturday sessions as the clock winds down on their time at the Capitol.

The constitutional deadline for adjournment is May 23, just nine days off. Both the House and the Senate plan to take up a number of policy bills, but there’s no sign that substantive negotiations have started between Gov. Mark Dayton and legislative leaders over the $5 billion projected shortfall in the state budget.

The most contentious policy debate Saturday is likely to be in the House, which is scheduled to take up a bill that would expand the rights of people to use deadly force if they feel they are in imminent danger.
