Legislature moves slowly to the end; special session coming
ST. PAUL -- Gov. Mark Dayton says he is pessimistic of any real movement toward a budget deal today, the final day of the 2011 regular legislative session, and Republicans in control of the Legislature could point to no progress.
Nine budget and tax bills sit on Dayton's desk for signatures or vetoes, and all indications are it will be the latter.
"Where there is a will, there's a way," Dayton said, "but there has to be some willingness."
