Gov. Tim Walz announced on July 7, he intends to call lawmakers back for an open-ended session beginning July 13.
Walz stated the session will coincide with the 30-day extension of the peacetime emergency ending July 12, and added that other issues should get top billing.
Walz is obligated by law to call a special session for the Legislature to approve the emergency declaration.
The Senate tried to revoke the governor’s executive power during the first special session ending June 19.
However, the attempt failed because it requires the vote of both chambers.
In the first special session, no deals were reached on legislation both parties said was necessary and everything will be on the agenda again.
The Legislature will determine the length of the session.
