Minnesota legislative leaders say they'll call a special session to finish the state budget after blowing Monday's midnight deadline. The Legislature scrambled to finish a two-year spending plan but ran out of time as Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton and top Republicans struggled to find agreement on major pieces of the budget. But the two sides announced a deal to call a special session immediately Tuesday in the final hour of the regular session. It reportedly includes a 600-million dollar tax cut. The budget blueprint would also target 990-million in a bonding bill and 700-million for transportation projects.
