Minnesota budget talks mysteriously break off
ST. PAUL -- Minnesota budget talks mysteriously ended Sunday afternoon, and negotiators refused to say why they broke off as the state faces a potential Friday government shutdown.
"Until we have come to completion on the budget" those involved will not talk, House Speaker Kurt Zellers, R-Maple Grove, said.
Republican spokesmen said they knew of no further meetings planned among Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton and legislative leaders.
