Minnesota Legislature Likely to Convene Special Session
The Minnesota Legislature will likely convene a special session after Gov. Mark Dayton vetoed the state’s education budget. Unless law makers can come to an agreement on an education budget before July 1, the state Department of Education will shut down.
The special session will likely convene in the coming weeks, but due to renovations at the Capitol, legislators will meet outside of their chambers. Minnesota law requires the Legislature to convene inside the city limits of St. Paul.
Dayton has until Saturday, May 23, 2015, to sign or veto any other budget bills, or let them become law without his signature.
