It’s the lull before the storm at the Minnesota Capitol with just three days left for the legislature to finish its business by midnight Sunday. It happens like this nearly every year at the Capitol, although most analysts agree this temporary state of suspended animation is closer to the deadline than usual. Neither side will admit it, but each is waiting for some of the remaining hours to slip away in hopes of gaining leverage in negotiations. Republicans seem willing to talk to Governor Mark Dayton about emergency school funding, in hopes of reviving a tax-cut bill he vetoed, but stark differences remain over *who* should get tax breaks. And expect efforts to revive a bonding bill for state public works projects that crashed in the Minnesota Senate. At this point the governor wants 1.5 billion dollars. Republicans say 825 million is their top number.
