Ugly start to Legislature's home stretch
ST. PAUL -- Two weeks are left in the Minnesota legislative session and it is not pretty.
"If we don't get done on time, members, the blame lies at the feet of the governor," Rep. Morrie Lanning, R-Moorhead, told fellow representatives hours after a meeting among he, another lawmaker and Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton abruptly ended.
Dayton invited Lanning and Sen. Mike Parry, R-Waseca, to a meeting about negotiations on their state government spending bills.
