ST. PAUL, Minn. — Minnesota’s Legislature has adjourned in chaos and left some key work unfinished.
Lawmakers careened into the midnight Sunday deadline to pass bills scrambling to finalize a package of construction projects and road and bridge repairs. That last-ditch effort fell short over a partisan disagreement on funding mass transit projects.
The Legislature had already finalized some extra spending for preschool programs and a package of $260 million in tax cuts.
It’s up to Gov. Mark Dayton to sign off on what work the Legislature did complete. Dayton has 14 days to decide.
