MN Senate GOP Leader Says Deal Close on Bonding, Tax Bills
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) _ The Minnesota Senate's top Republican says legislative leaders have agreed on most details of a bonding bill and a tax bill.
Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka also says talks are continuing on whether a compromise is possible on police accountability in response to the death of George Floyd.
Gazelka told reporters his chamber would open the special session Monday with a vote to rescind the special powers Gov. Tim Walz has used to respond to COVID-19.
The Democratic-controlled House is expected to block that. Gazelka said the Senate would then adjourn until the House passes the bonding and tax bills.
