ST. PAUL -- Legislative leaders and Gov. Mark Dayton plan a late-afternoon Friday meeting to work out details about a probable special session that could appropriate money for disaster relief and, perhaps, overturn a tax or two.


Dayton said he hopes the five can at least agree on the date of a special session, which he proposes to be Sept. 9. He said he would love an agreement that legislators will only consider the disaster and overturning a farm implement repair tax.
