The Minnesota Senate began its special session at 3:12 p.m. Tuesday, with a moment of silence for longtime member Sen. Linda Scheid, who died last month after a battle with cancer.

A tearful Sen. Ann Rest asked the members to remember their colleague and her friend, and then the senators stood in silence before getting down to what might be a long night of business.
