MN Lawmakers End Session Without Transportation Deal 23 May 16

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota’s Legislature has adjourned in chaos and left some key work unfinished.

Lawmakers careened into the midnight Sunday deadline to pass bills scrambling to finalize a package of construction projects and road and bridge repairs. That last-ditch effort fell short over a partisan disagreement on funding mass transit projects.

The Legislature had already finalized some extra spending for preschool programs and a package of $260 million in tax cuts.

It’s up to Gov. Mark Dayton to sign off on what work the Legislature did complete. Dayton has 14 days to decide.
