Special Session Update

Faced with the urgent increases to health insurance costs, it looks like Governor Dayton and legislators are close to reaching an agreement on holding a special session. The Governor has asked legislative leaders to agree to his proposed special session terms by this Thursday. However, the proposed Dec. 20 special session will not include money for Corridors of Commerce or U.S. Highway 14. Part of the Governor’s offer is to drop the last-minute transportation language included in the regular session bonding bill. Lobbying for Corridors of Commerce funding will resume in the regular session, which starts Jan. 3, 2017.
