ST. PAUL, Minn. (KEYC) - A second special session gets underway Monday in St. Paul. As of this morning, legislative leaders have agreed on most details of a bonding bill and a tax bill.
Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka says talks are also continuing on whether a compromise is possible on police accountability in response to the death of George Floyd. Gazelka said the chamber would open the special session today with a vote to rescind the special powers Gov. Tim Walz has used to respond to COVID-19.
The Democratic-controlled House is expected to block that. Gazelka said the Senate would then adjourn until the House passes the bonding and tax bills.
