Special session imminent?

Posted at 10:35 AM on July 19, 2011 by Paul Tosto (0 Comments)

MPR News reporter Tom Scheck writes:

Several people tell MPR News that there is a handshake agreement on all of the budget bills.

There is a possibility that Gov. Dayton could call a special session as early as today. Expect the House and Senate to kick it into overdrive and work around the clock until all of the budget bills have been passed into law.

UPDATE: Reporters have just been told to go to the front of the governor's office immediately for an announcement.
