ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz (DFL) and top legislative leaders have reached a budget agreement with the clock ticking down on the 2019 legislative session.
They’ve scheduled a news conference for 6:30 p.m. to announce the details.
Neither Walz nor Republican Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka nor Democratic House Speaker Melissa Hortman had said much publicly for the past week on the progress of their negotiations toward a budget deal.
But the legislative session faces an adjournment deadline of midnight Monday night, and it’s expected that lawmakers will need a special session to complete their work.
