Legislature completes its work and heads home after special session
ST. PAUL - It took more than 10 extra hours, but Minnesota legislators finally finished their most important job of 2010 and went home for the year this morning.
The Housed voted 97-32 and the Senate 52-14 for a bill that covered a nearly $3 billion state budget deficit. The final vote came at 10:30 a.m. today and ended a brief special session called because lawmakers could not meet their midnight deadline.
