Another day and more gridlock in Minnesota.
Budget negotiations continued Tuesday to try to avert a state government shutdown, but no deal has stuck yet.
Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton again met with Republican leaders of the legislature, calling the talks “constructive.” But he said they still have their differences. Beyond that, details of the negations have been been intentionally vague, as lawmakers have committed not to speak publicly about the specifics of the meetings.
With a June 30 deadline to avert a shutdown, how realistic are the chances of a deal?
