Governor Pawlenty said Wednesday that there will be no special session to help cities balance their budgets. Leaders from Bemidji, Hutchinson, Owatonna, Ely, Moorhead and North Mankato are to meet Thursday morning at the capitol to ask for one anyway. City leaders would like lawmakers to grant them $70-Million of state money and think about property tax relief because so many school levy referendums passed this year. Governor Pawlenty said lawmakers couldn't agree to a session focused on a tax bill. Pawlenty said a recent budget forecast suggested there may not be any extra money in the state budget.
