Dayton hopes some agencies can reopen tomorrow

Posted at 11:09 AM on July 19, 2011 by Paul Tosto (1 Comments)

Minutes after announcing plans to call lawmakers into session at 3 p.m. today to pass all the needed budget bills to end the state government shutdown, Gov. Mark Dayton expressed hope that some agencies could reopen for business by Wednesday, MPR's Tom Scheck reports.

It also appears that any concerns that social policy issues could creep back into the debate are moot. GOP House Speaker Kurt Zellers said there will be no amendments to the budget deal legislation.

"I would say it's better to get people back to work than talk about a bill."
