Health care a sticking point as budget talks turn specific

Health care a sticking point as budget talks turn specific

Its passage allows the state to get an extension to continue using standard driver's licenses to board planes until October 2020.

That's what happened this week, after DFL Gov. Mark Dayton presented an offer to the Republicans who control the Minnesota Legislature in an attempt to wrap up the state's $46 billion two-year budget.

This has taken two years of fighting about state's rights, privacy, and driver's licenses for undocumented workers to reach this deal, but the House and Senate have now passed the compromise bill and Gov. Dayton is expected to sign it. "We will not give the governor a blank check for more government spending without pairing it with needed reforms to improve how the state serves Minnesotans", said House Speaker Kurt Daudt. By counting the courts and cyber security funding priorities separately, Dayton wasn't actually meeting Republicans halfway, he said.

"I think Minnesotans can understand that's a fair and reasonable offer, and it gets us to a conclusion".

"What Minnesotans need to know is that once the governor signs the bill that they are going to be able to fly come January of 2018 without hindrance", Smith said. He says cutting that much would harm "real programs and real people".

Petr Cech sends warning to Liverpool about Arsenal
Arsenal produced one of its best performances of the season to beat Stoke 4-1 on Saturday and move to within one point of the top four with two games remaining.

The January deadline is still in play.

Minnesota had been one of the last states in the nation to make sure its state driver's licenses adhere to the federal standards known as Real ID.

But most lawmakers were relieved to finally solve a problem that threatened to create major headaches for their constituents.

"Gov. Dayton says GOP lawmakers made a "serious" budget offer this morning", Hauser tweeted. "If you get into the policy matters, we are talking about hours and hours and hours of discussion and debate, ' Dayton said this week". But a big setback also presented itself Tuesday when the House failed to pass an $800 million package of borrowing for public works projects around the state, usually a popular measure that allows lawmakers to deliver construction dollars back home.
