Legislative Leaders Fly into Brainerd

Senate and House Republican Leaders will travel around the state today to promote their budget package and encourage Governor Dayton to sign their bills into law.

Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch (R-Buffalo), Speaker of the House Kurt Zellers (R-Maple Grove), Senate Deputy Majority Leader Geoff Michel (R-Edina) and House Majority Leader Matt Dean (R-Dellwood) will host media availabilities at six stops throughout the state.

The group of legislators will hold a news conference at the Brainerd regional airport at 3:15 p.m.

Governor Mark Dayton has hinted strongly he will veto the Republican package, indicating the two sides need to compromise.  He says he has come half way, but the legislative leadership has not.  The Republicans say $34 billion is enough state spending, and will not authorize any more.
