MPR News Update for May 23

Tuesday, May 23, 2017

Good morning! Cloudy with scattered showers today. Highs in the 50s to 60s. It was a long day yesterday for Minnesota lawmakers but not long enough. Legislators missed a deadline for completing their year's work and transitioned straight into a special session Tuesday to complete work on a $46 billion two-year budget. Republican legislative leaders and DFL Gov. Mark Dayton announced they had reached a tentative agreement on the budget that they didn't have enough time to pass Monday. Dayton called lawmakers back into session at 12:01 a.m. Tuesday with the understanding that they would pass their remaining budget bills later Tuesday and adjourn by 7 a.m. Wednesday. | Forecast | Updraft weather blog
