It looks like there will be another special session probably next week, to give the Minnesota Legislature another chance to weigh-in on a likely extension of Governor Tim Walz’s COVID emergency powers.   The governor says:

“I think the date we would probably be looking at is the 10th or so of July.”

The first special session adjourned 10 days ago with no agreement on police reform, a bonding bill and other issues. We asked House Democratic Majority Leader Ryan Winkler about prospects for a deal before the next special session begins:

“I think it will be challenging to get there by July 10th, but we are going work very hard to bring people to the table….   We don’t want to quit and go home and have nothing to show for our work. That is not what any of us were hired to do.”
