No agreement on a possible special session after Governor Mark Dayton and legislative leaders met behind closed doors today (Thurs). House Speaker, Republican Kurt Daudt (DOWT) says he’ll discuss it with his colleagues to see if all parties can get together on a solution. He says “That process will probably take some time. It may not be successful — but it may be successful. And I think all of us understand that these problems are important.” The governor wants a special session to extend unemployment benefits for Iron Range miners and address the jobs and achievement gap in north Minneapolis. Republicans have been reluctant because they say Dayton has been holding up the PolyMet project in northern Minnesota.
