ST. PAUL - Gov. Mark Dayton has given key lawmakers a proposed agreement to lead to a special Minnesota legislative session to fund disaster recovery and eliminate a farm implement repair tax.


The draft agreement Dayton released Tuesday night calls for the session to begin at 2 p.m. Sept. 9 and adjourn no later than 7 a.m. the next day. He requires the four legislative leaders, Democrats and Republicans, to sign it before he will call a special session.
