Minnesota Lawmakers in Middle of Blame Game

Senate Republicans were stalled for the second day because another senator's absence left them without the necessary votes

ST. PAUL, Minn. — Work on a budget for Minnesota is still at a standstill as leaders now continue to point fingers at who is responsible.

Gov. Dayton and Republican House and Senate leaders are no longer negotiating while House Speaker Kurt Daudt accuses the governor of attempting to run out the clock.

Senate Republicans were stalled for the second day because another senator’s absence left them without the necessary votes.

Dayton says he is confident they will have a two-year budget wrapped up by May 22nd.
