Minn. Legislature's Goal Of Monday Finish Softens

April 29, 2012, 10:28 AM

Minn. Legislature's Goal Of Monday Finish Softens
ST. PAUL, MN -

Monday has long been circled on the Minnesota Legislature's calendar as the final day. Now Republican leaders are giving themselves more wiggle room.

House Speaker Kurt Zellers said Saturday that he's willing to hold the session open into May if it looks like agreements on a tax-cut package, a construction finance bill and a Vikings stadium need more time to work out.

Back in December, the Republican leader set April 30 as the hard-and-fast deadline. The Legislature has the power to go into mid-May and lawmakers usually take all the time allotted to them.

But the Legislature doesn't operate under a typical calendar. A legislative day can stretch until 7 a.m. the next morning, meaning a 6:59 a.m. finish Tuesday would still meet the end-of-April goal.
