ST. PAUL -- Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton on Monday vetoed Republican legislators' $34 billion budget plan.
The vetoes of budget and tax bills came hours after Legislature adjourned its regular session. The actions set up continued negotiations and the need for a special legislative session.
If no deal is reached by July 1, state government runs out of money and much of state government will be shut down.
