Gov. Mark Dayton is blaming Senate Republicans for failure to pass a tax bill that would provide relief to thousands of Minnesotans.
    
Dayton says the GOP has refused to suspend rules to give the bill prompt consideration on the floor. Republican Minority Leader David Hann says majority party Democrats waited until the last minute.
    
Dayton was ready to sign legislation Thursday if it cleared both the Senate and House. He says the delay misses a deadline and will require many people to file amended returns to get tax cuts if the bill eventually passes.
    
The $432 million proposal would also put $150 million into a budget reserve.
    
Republican senators say the deserved more time to review the bill. They prefer a larger $500 million version passed earlier by the House.
