Legislature in review: What did and didn't happen
ST. PAUL -- A special legislative session will be needed to pass the Minnesota budget, but other work was finished during the regular 2011 legislative session with 117 bills sent to Gov. Mark Dayton for his signature or veto out of more than 3,000 that senators and representatives introduced.
Many of the major issues are unresolved, pending the special session. And many of the smaller issues were embedded in the budget bills Dayton vetoed.
