Negotiations on Minnesota budget continue

Has agreed with GOP leaders to end the shutdown.

Negotiations on nine budget bills needed to end Minnesota's government shutdown missed a Friday night deadline. That sent Governor Mark Dayton and republicans into a morning meeting to get negotiations back on track.

Some are frustrated over the vague budget deal. Dayton says lawmakers agreed to leave out policies that don't affect the budget. Republicans claim government reform and other policies still may be part of the final solution.
