Governor Dayton has called a special session beginning at 3:00 P.M. today. The Governor and Legislative leaders signed an agreement that contained the terms for the special session in which they will complete the budget. Under this agreement, the Legislature will only consider the 10 finance bills, the Pensions and the Legacy funding bill.
In addition, the normal rules of the House and Senate will be suspended. There will be no public hearings on the bill. They will be placed before the legislative bodies on third reading. Amendments to the legislation will not be allowed and there will be no other votes or bills permitted.
We are still waiting for the tax bill to be made public and will share details with CGMC members later today.
