Dayton, GOP plan lock-in to negotiate budget
Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton and the top two Republican legislative leaders today agreed to lock themselves in a room Friday and Saturday in a last-ditch effort to agree on a state budget.
"We won't leave until we at least have some consensus, a framework," House Speaker Kurt Zellers, R-Maple Grove, said.
Details remain to be worked out, but Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch, R-Buffalo, said they could remain in the room 24 hours a day.
