ST. PAUL (KMHL) – Gov. Tim Walz has summoned lawmakers back to the capitol for a special session today.

The goal is to try and finish work on the state’s two year budget before the Memorial Day weekend. Whether that happens or not, remains to be seen.

“I can make it a 5 day special session or a 1 day special session,” said House Minority Leader Kurt Daudt. “I can include a bonding bill in that special session or none at all. So hopefully they understand and appreciate that.”

As news of the special session has come out, there seems to be a lot of negative reaction to the deals made on both sides of the isle.

Senate Minority Leader Tom Bakk told MPR that he urged the governor to wait on a special session until after the weekend.
