Dayton and Daudt agree on something: Special session to be in State Office Building

Gov. Mark Dayton and GOP House Speaker Kurt Daudt met today to begin planning a special session, now that the governor has vetoed three budget bills.

After an hourlong chat at the governor’s residence in St. Paul, the two emerged to say that they’ve agreed on one thing, at least: a place for the special session. It’ll be in the State Office Building because the Capitol building is shut down for renovation during what was supposed to be the quiet time after the regular session.

There’s no date set for the special session, though both said they’d like to keep it to a one-day session.

And no agreement, yet, on how to handle the vetoed bills. They’ll meet again Wednesday.
